My new GI doc said she would just like to do a sigmoidoscopy as she thinks even though I have pancolitis she feels most of my problem is in the rectal area but I still have abdominal pain so I left her a message to she if a full colonoscopy would be better...after all it appears the prep is the same. What do you guys think?

I don't think it is a problem. I'm pretty sure you can ask for a c-scope anytime, especially if you're having a lot of trouble. I had a 2nd c-scope a year after diagnosis.

I would go for the full colonoscopy - why not?  If your insurance covers it or ? - yes, prep is the same.
