After my hospital stay they decided that I didn't have UC becaues after repeating my colon-oscapy everything looked great.
I don't understand this sentence. I had a colonoscopy done soon after my second flare (which was a very severe flare in which I was at risk for losing my colon) and everything looked great. There was barely any evidence that I had had a flareup. However, the medical profession considers you to have Colitis as long as you have had even one inflammation. It doesn't matter how great the colon looks during remission.
