I hope you find relief with this new treatment. You started it only Thursday of last week, so hopefully it continues working.
What you describe is very odd, a little hard to follow, and I think there must be more to this story. You did admit you didn't follow all of what your doctor said, so it's possible that key details were infact missed. I understand your excitement, we're all very frustrated when things aren't working and we're suffering/miserable.
However, I do not believe many, if any of the rest of us were misdiagnosed as you say. The age ranges you cite are the most common age ranges for uc diagnosis, but not the only ages possible. I was diagnosed with uc at 32 and everything was conclusive biopsies, scope, and the medications have worked very well for me, so I have no doubt in my diagnosis.
