Bowel Prep for surgery on 29th

I was told today to do a Fleets Enema, OH YEA!, lol, and now that I am reading that doing that can severly dehydrate you, what happens if you have IBS with diarrea? I have that almost daily since I misplaced my medication and I wasn't sure that it would be good to take and to take a risk of constipated. I have never had one and I have never douched either, ugg and I am 32, man I have been under a rock I guess.

If you are unsure, I would call your doctor or the pre-op nurse. Did they know about your IBS? If they didn't, they probably should know about it as it may change what is required of you pre-op.

Good luck and best wishes.

Hi, calling your dr is a very good idea. It's important to let him/her know everything that is going on with you. It's been my experience that drs want you to follow their orders unless they change them, themselves

Best wishes,please keep us informed of what you learn.

Well hmmm

Well I called again today and had to wait till 4:30 to get an answer. Since they screwed up not telling me about the enema before hand, since it was so late all they could recomend was using a suppository. They didn't want me using anything this late. Well I used a suppository and didn't last a min due to the IBS. I am going to wait till everyone goes to bed to try another one. Ugg and the thing hurt really bad too, this *****. And my heart started racing too. This is a common thing with IBS and I don't enjoy it. WAAAAAAAA, sorry for whining.
