I have a colonoscopy booked for 2 weeks on Monday (19th), which is the first I have ever had. Was "diagnosed" by my GP back in 2006 but never had any tests for it, but recent mega flare-ups and a-like has made my GP now finally request a colonoscopy, which I am having privately.
Anyway, for those that have had a colonoscopy, my current worst fear of this is travelling from home to the hospital, which is about a 35 minute trip, after doing the "bowel clear out" prep. My fear is that I won't be able to make the journey without needing the toilet. But logically, my mind says your bowels should be empty so you shouldn't need to go. Could those that have done this please let me know what happened to them so I can prepare myself accordingly or rest my mind?
Also, many years ago I was also "diagnosed" with having Hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar), although no tests were ever performed. No, I am not diabetic. Had many tests for that over the years and always came back negative. Anyway, this is a big problem for me with following the prep for a colonoscopy. Is there anybody here who has had a colonoscopy and also suffers from Hypoglycaemia who could offer any advice?
