hey bbc, good luck w/the scope! For the prep I got great advice here, drink the nasty prep stuff over ice w/a straw w/stuff you do not mind not wanting to drink again.
I too just became dx'd w/pancolitis after it only affecting the first 25cm of my colon I had the same 'new' experiences as you. I was very upset but then reconciled myself to it. I am in pred induced remission right now, trying to get off of it. I hope all goes well.
Beth, 33 ~ hoping to taper pred successfully, wish me luck!
