Morning all, So nothing to eat today from 9 o'clock just finishing last piece of toast. Starting to get very nervous. So I've taken the day off work and I've just have liquid now until tomorrow morningS appointment. Won't I get incredibly dizzy just having water? I will try black coffee but don't really like it I bought some sprite and I bought some Robinsons Orange juice but it's no added sugar is that okay? I'm not sure what else I could have? Could I buy some ice lollies so long as it there was no chocolate or ice cream? Can't buy any Lucozade or energy drinks as I can't have caffeine
Then my notes say to start taking the prep at 5 o'clock people say for every mouthful of it to have a mouthful of water to help it go down? I'm very afraid I will throw it up as I don't tolerate things very well ! going to try and drink it through a straw see if that's easier. Have bought Andrex wipes and some Vasoline ! Presumably I'll get bad cramps? Can I take paracetamol ? Convinced I'm going to pass out. Will have to ring the hospital anyway as nobody answered about stopping my ompretzole (sp) and to make sure somebody can find a vein as they couldn't with endoscopy ! any tips greatly appreciated for this nervous wreck please lol do I need to pad up against leaks on way to hospital?! Do U remove underwear when u gown up?
