You poor thing!! YOu will be OK. They will give you an intravenous and a sedative for the test so you won't know what is going on. You are worrying for nothing regarding the test. Someone needs to drive you home obviously at the end of test. You will be recovered in a small room with nurses following the test and they will let you go home when you are able to walk and have recovered from the sedative which makes you sleepy!!! You can start to eat after the test and your bowels will start to move more regularly. Keep us posted on the results of your test. Do you have a good support system, ie. family or friends to help you the day of the test?
Good luck!! Are you male or female?
