This happened to me not long ago for the first time. I had just had a MRI of my bowel the day before, so I had to do a complete bowel prep and drink Metamucil for an hour before the procedure. The next day I went to work and was feeling pretty queasy but decided to go and look at the shops in my lunch hour to get my mind off it. I went to pass wind in the middle of this shop and I instantly knew it was something else. And I was at WORK!! I wanted to break down and cry right there and then but instead I gathered myself up, went to the chemist, and brought some more liners (I already had one on luckily, from my draining mushroom drain/fistula)….. got some baby wipes…..Ran to my work bathrooms I(unfortunately a VERY uncomfortable, ten minute walk away) and got myself sorted. It was the worst most upsetting experience. I was so humiliated. I didn’t tell a soul, just went back to work, and had no option. I felt so awful for the rest of the day. I wanted to cry! I think it had a lot to do with the bowel prep the day before/empty bowel/ Metamucil/loose stools. But it was awful!
Yeah its weird hey, I’ve never heard of anyone else having full bowel prep, and the MRI went for 45minutes!! Lots of lying down doing nothing and listening to music!! Drinking the Metamucil was the worst part, a glass every 10 minutes, yuck!!! I didn’t realise the prep would make things so uneasy the next day and came to work not knowing! Thank god for liners and wipes is all I can say
