Hey everyone, so Tuesday I had to prep for Wednesdays colonoscopy. I was given the usual instructions of just liquids the day before and start liquid Peg prep mid afternoon. 4 litres of that god awful stuff. I know there are easier ways to do this now however because I have Afib also apparently this is the only I can do it as this preparation has electrolytes in it so I don't get dehydrated as this is important for people with Afib. Okay so I start taking this stuff yuk. Eventually I have to mix it with a bit of clear juice just to get it down. Halfway through I start feeling Bloated. Very Bloated. And your suppose to take a glass very 15 mins. So I have to slow down. I finally get through all 4 litres and of course the pooping started long ago lol. But I start feeling nauseated. Like really bad. Plus dizzy and light headed. Next thing I know I'm barfing and barfing and barfing. My husband said about 1 and a half litres came back out. Omg that was awful. Very bad experience. However I managed to take in enough prep to clear the bowel. So I went yesterday and the colonoscopy procedure went well. Apparently they use C0 now as the air of choice to expand the intestines so when you are recovering you don't fart at all. I thought the recovery area was awfully quiet for a bunch of colonoscopy patients lol. So as far as my upcoming surgery I know nothing more than before. They still don't know if I'll have to have an open, a bag, both or done through the laparoscope. But they were able to confirm there is a section that needs to be removed. I will continue to update everyone just before surgery which is May 6th. Cheers and hugs 🙂👍
