i forgot what the dr told me also....i told the pharmacist what i was having done and he told me exactly what and where to find it. i also wish i han'nt mixed it with so much water.......it took forever for me to get it down.(bottom shelf.... wal mart where the laxitives are.)
i just bought it today, convienently located in the laxative aisle. It is called Fleet Phospho Soda. My Dr. suggested mixing it with gingerale to make it more palatable. I'll let you know on Sunday. Cheers!
Thank you so much for the info... I will mix with Gingerale, great idea. My doctor is at times spacey and forgets to tell me things... A bit scarey.... I really do appreciate your quick response.... I know I could count on my sisters....
I just got my surgery date; it's Monday, January 31st. I, too, was told to drink clear fluids and buy the Fleet Phospho Soda. They said to drink 1/2 the bottle in the a.m. and the other 1/2 in the p.m. Then a Fleet enema (ick) on Monday morning. Thing is, if I can't drink anything on Monday, how do I take my stomach meds in the morning? I heard it's good for you to take them because it helps with anesthesia.
Good luck to you ACPD, looks like we have the same surgery date. Mine isn't until 3:45 p.m., though.
Are your dr's aware of the "stomach" medications you take? If not, you need to give you dr a call ASAP. If infact your dr's are aware and you've been cleared to take these medications the morning of your surgery, its advised that you take them either w/o water or with the smallest amount of water possible.
