Hi there, I originally had left-sided UC and for the past 5 years or so I have only had Ulcerative Proctitis, but a bad case. I haven't had it move up my colon. I am on very strong meds so I don't know if that has prevented it from moving upwards or if it's just a coincidence. Try not to worry about it too much because worrying will only make you worse.
