Active colitis doesn't mean UC, and hopefully the doc took LOTS of biopsies to check you for microscopic colitis and anything else that can be verified.
Do you have a copy of the pathology report? I would strongly suggest you get one.
Did the doc put you on amy meds?
Are you having any bleeding at all?
You need to go see a GI....truly....and have an actual diagnosis.
It doesn't sound like UC to me, however....
Did you have stool samples done as well?
