I rarely see people here with fistulas who have UC. I knew one person who had surgery, and she wasn't a candidate for a j-pouch, because of a fistula. She ended up getting pathology during surgery and the pathology said UC. Have you seen your pathology reports? You should request them.
It's true that treatments are the same. The big reason to differentiate is if you need medical options that are
open to one IBD and not the other, or if you were considering surgery.
