It doesn't seem you've been diagnosed with UC yet?
Proximal...close to the origin...so, it would mean you have severe inflammation in the beginning part of the transverse colon which would be just about
or after the hepatic flexure.
You have moderate inflammation in the sigmoid colon.
You have mild inflammation in the beginning part of the descending colon...which is just about
or after the splenic flexure.
What exactly does the report say about
the rectum, between the areas that are stated as severe/moderate and mild?

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
