well, went for CT scan.
They made me drink peglite for 40 minutes (and then seemed surprised I didn't need to run to the washroom!)
Preps always take some time to kick in for me... I drank it from 8- 8:40am and it only kicked in now (11:30). Not too bad though. Not much cramping or anything - just the runs! Hopefully it will be mild for me and not upset things tummy wise as I'm doing really well with the Remicade.
Was suppose to drop my last 5mg of Pred. today, but decided to keep on it for a few more days just to be on safe side since i did this procedure.
They also did an IV contrast solution, but said that shouldn't affect bowels, just need to drink alot to wash it out . Scan itself was much quicker than I was expecting... so all is well and now hopefully once results are in, we can rule out crohn's and go on with managing this UC.
