Re: Upcoming Surgery 4/10

Yes the bowel cleanse scares me as well. My surgery is at 8am 6am check in time. I was told to eat light on the 7th and 8th and then do liquid diet on the 9th (liquids of any colors) and drink the nasty drink at noon and have a good book in hand. LOL That was my directions. Oh and no food or drink after midnight.

So as far as the liquid diet goes what are you all drinking?
I have popsicsles, icecream for milk shakes, water, gatorade, and soup broth. Any other ideas I didnt think of?

Re: Upcoming Surgery 4/10

a milk shake isnt really liquid hun so you may want to call your doc and make sure thats alright. I got put on a strict clear liquid diet with no red, orange or purple drinks. so im pretty limited. im planning on broth and water. i want to try to find a way to get some white grape juice for something sweet. as for you, sounds like you pretty much have it covered. cant think of anything else.

Re: Upcoming Surgery 4/10

Figured they have a reason for wanting that way. I worked for doctors for many years and IF they have a bad experience with something one time, they will do whatever they can to make sure it doesn't happen again. Can't blame them - mistakes are VERY costly. Who knows - your doctor or some other doctor he knows might have nicked the bowel one time and had a real problem, so better to be safe than sorry!! Anyway, it will all be fine - I just kept thinking....tolerating a few bad days is going to help me to enjoy many great days! Best to you!

Re: Upcoming Surgery 4/10

I agree, maybe you can call and ask if you can move up your bowel prep, so you can relax and not be having to run to the potty that evening!
I will be thinking of you on the 10th, my pre-op is then!

gOOD LUCK!!

Re: Upcoming Surgery 4/10

Yeah thats what I thought about the milkshakes too. But the DR and the Nurse both said they were fine for the liquid diet day. So I am just going with it. LOL They also said any color will be fine so that helps. At least I can have a choc shake. LOL

As for you yeah I would get some white grape juice and maybe some of the clear gatorades not sure what flavors they are but they have lots of choices now.
