Sorry I know this is my third post on here within the last week or so, I am just feeling so isolated and scared right now. I wish I was stronger.
So my colonoscopy is on Saturday morning at 9.45AM and I have been instructed to take the dreaded Moviprep tomorrow at 5pm and the second dose between 8pm-9pm. The last couple of days I have tried to stick to a reasonably low fibre diet. Today I have eaten, three slices of white bread, some white pasta and some Rich Tea biscuits. Nothing else..I was planning on eating less than this but hunger got the better of me.
Does anyone have any advice on how to handle tomorrow? I am so terrified. Biggest worry is the diarrhoea prior to the colonoscopy and still having it on my journey to/when I arrive to my appointment! It's only a 10 minute car journey but I have this phobia of having an accident on the way there/while I'm there as I've heard the motions are explosive/super urgent:( Does anyone know if its okay to take the Moviprep at 3pm instead, and then the second dose at around 6? Just so I can reduce the likelihood of this happening. How long are the bowel movements likely to last? I feel so sick don't think I'll be sleeping tonight 😦
The reason for my referral is because I have had a deep pelvic ache on my right side that I've had on and off for 8 months, and alternating mild abdominal pain on left and right side. I think the pelvic pain is related to my bladder as it seems to make me pee more frequently/urgently, but doctor wants to check its nothing to do with my intestines apparently as I have had intense aching/pressure in my rectal area also which is unrelated to bowel movements....feel like this is all so drastic and is just going to make me feel worse. Don't know why I'm going through with this. I feel like I have no one to turn to for support 😦
Thanks for reading,
