There is a form of UC where there's inflammation in the rectum and in the cecum, but with all between clear. Whether or not it becomes ulcerative pancolitis I don't know.
princesa, where exactly is your UC...limited or throughout? Are you saying that you are clear in the rectum as well except with pain/etc on the right side where there's thickening?
Thickening of the bowel wall could very well be CD if I'm not mistaken. It could be that you are misdiagnosed...but...you should be on meds to take care of the inflammation in that area.
I would push for a colonoscopy just to have biopsies done. You could have an infection in that area or inflammation from bowel disease or whatever. I do agree, it's time for another opinion.
What meds are you on at this time?
Welcome to the forum....I hope you find resolve to your situation. Frustrating for you..I can only imagine.
