unlcertive colitis

My Dad has colitis and I have now developed some symptoms of colitis. I had a colonoscopy and my doctor said he thought he saw some colitis. Well the nurse called back today to say my biopsies were normal. I have an appointment with my doctor tomorrow. My question is could I have mild unlcertive colitis but have it not show up in my biopsies?

There are various types of colitis, such as infectious, inflammatory, ischemic, just to name a few. You should follow-up with gastroenterologist regarding further workup and management.

Yes, when it is "mild" but beware of when you have a "flare up" and follow up with
your doctor on how to handle it. Some flare ups can last for days. Good luck!
