Cooper, I'm sorry to hear that. The Promethius test is really unreliable, but biopsies are usually conclusive. As others have said, even though the diagnosis was wrong, the treatment was still appropriate because UC and Crohn's colitis are treated in very similar ways.
Regardless of your diagnosis, I hope you're soon in remission and feeling better.
