Definitely start with a new GI. Explain that you were treated for C. diff but that the doctor who provided that treatment isn't keeping you informed and following up with you. First they need to be sure the C. diff is conquered, because there are more and more strains around that are drug resistant. If that has cleared and you're still having symptoms, medication and follow-up with colonoscopy is indicated.
Don't ever let a doctor's office brush you off or a doctor leave you hanging. If you have to fight to get your needs met, change doctors. If for some reason you can't change doctors, keep fighting.
Abdominal pain with passage of mucous and blood are classic signs of both C. diff and UC. The doctor's unlicensed employee clearly doesn't know what she's doing, and that doc could be in line for some bad mojo if he keeps letting her talk to patients.
