When you think about
how much fluid you put through your colon for the prep, it makes sense that it could irritate the affected area more. Excessive mucus is the colon's attempt to put a barrier between itself and something that's irritating it. I think your doctor's assistant gave you good information. But it's frustrating when the thing that's supposed to lead you to help makes you feel worse!
I think your positive attitude is great. Doing something relaxing and distracting yourself from thinking about
it when you can is great therapy to get through the bad times.
