I would try oral prednisone again probably (I only say probably because you have osteoporosis...I don't know how bad your osteoporosis is so you'd have to weigh those risks with potential benefits...). If you're in pain, you can ask for pain meds and hope you have a doctor who will give you some (they can help constipate you too which is a very nice thing while in a UC flare). You can also go to the ER and if you're really bad, get admitted to the hospital. Have you tried biologics? I would think that would be your next step. It could be your flare just got worse despite the IV prednisone last time, not because of it. Obviously, you response to steroids if Uceris helped you so there is no reason prednisone wouldn't also help you. You really need to get those scopes done and get on more meds, in my opinion. You're already flaring now, so you don't really have to worry about a scope causing a flare like you mentioned in your last post.
