Bowel prep today

Today I start bowel prep and clear liquids. I think it is gonna be hard not being able to eat for so long (until tomorrow after surgery I think), but I'm sure I will survive. I'm dreading the citrate and will start it at 12:00 yuck. It is weird but I have a strange sense of calm, even yesterday at my pre-op appointment. I have been so nervous and now so calm. Has anyone else had this experience. I will be on my way to the hospital tomorrow surgery at 1:30, but have to be there at 11:30, that's probably when the nerves kick in. I will let you all know how it goes. Thanks to everyone and all the support.

Re: Bowel prep today

I remember being very nervous and then a sense of calm came over me. Odd as it seemed to me, I was glad. I hope your bowel prep goes well and very quickly. Hang in there!

Re: Bowel prep today

I was originally scheduled for my surgery on the 17th (Dr. called in sick that morning...didn't know they could do that!) So I had already did my bowel prep the day before...I could only do clear liquids the whole day...(nothing red) do 4 dulalax and then 2 hours later drink a 14 day supply of Miralax in 2 hours...I was so depleted and weak...(I'm sorry to say, just being honest) and I was starving! When the Dr. called at 4:45am to tell me the surgery was off...I laid in bed and all I could think about is how hungry I was and what I wanted to eat. Well my surgery is tomorrow also the 30th and today is the wonderful day I do the bowel prep again...I have 5 minutes (12:00) to start the drink and I am dreading it. But the last time I sleep so good the night before the surgery...I was extremely calm...I feel pretty calm again this time, except for the bowel prep part. Good luck with your surgery!

Re: Bowel prep today

I felt that, too. I think it is because you are finally doing something productive.

I too felt very calm before. I figured I would be a mess as they took me into the operating room but my husband gave me a high 5 and off I went. Best of luck to you.
