try not to be nervous, it usually makes things worse.
since you think you may be headed toward a diagnosis of UC, i would do some research and find out about treatments etc so you can go in knowing as much as possible and will be able to ask more informed questions.
after my diagnosis i had no idea what UC was (or that there was no cure) until looking it up online.
other than that just try to stay positive and remember that many people with this disease can feel very well if treatments are working for them. and you have something going for you that lots of people don't... sympathetic family members (or at least they can relate).
hope your appt goes well and that you start feeling better soon!
