I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2002 when I was 28 years old after being sick in the hospital for a week with bloody and mucus-filled stools. I took a sample of the biopsy to a different GI, he tested it and found no UC. I remained pretty ill for about two years and also had a laparoscopy(sp?). I was then diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome. Now it has mostly cleared up. Learning that I am highly fructose intolerant and intolerant of onions has helped me change my diet. The doctors now theorize that I had an infection of some kind, not UC.

My point is that UC can be acute and chronic, and sometimes it can clear up. Also misdiagnosis is possible so you might want to have those biopsies retested. THe lab always saves some. I have not had a colonoscopy in five years and will hopefully won't need one until I reach the age that it is generally recommended.
