WeEn...as much as that feeling is the worst..for me as well...you have to go through the clean-out, and that could cause a tad more discomfort.
The doctor will be taking biopsies and on a visual he can hopefully start you on meds to deal with the inflammation. Once you get the report of the biopsies, hopefully you'll have confirmation on a diagnosis and you will see improvement soon afterward.
What clean-out are you using for the c-scope?
I too agree with you to not consume too many milk products or high fibre foods such as fruits or uncooked veggies. Can you have protein? can you eat eggs? they are definitely a good protein and easy to digest.
Hang tough....we've all been compromised when going through first flares and no answers....although you don't know what you have as of yet, what you're experiencing is near impossible to ignore.
Keep us updated as to how you're doing.
Oh, welcome to the forum if I haven't already extended that yet.
