It'll take probably 4 days to get things falling into a proper working order.
The other thing......low in the rectum inflammation can cause constipation. Considering you had some, you might want to use an enema maybe for a night or two then once a week to help get that under control.
Bentyl will help with the spasming and all you can do is wait it out until things resume.
Did you have any bleeding from the biopsies?
Hope your colon gets back to pooping process soon.
