:-)  great stuff, i bet you are so happy. Realy pleased that the docs are finally going to try and help you, hopefully you will come out the other end fighting fit. We will all be thinking about you, and sending best wishes your way.Good luck with colon prep!!!! lol what fun I had, tummy didn't like the preps and cos they are so disgusting I was on the toilet and throwing up at the same time. I can laugh about it now, if anyone had seen me!!!! it would have been a sight, but hey couldn't complain i was on the toilet!!!!!!!!!!! mind you it did take over 2 days to get cleaned out.

your kidding he is going to clean you out with a tube in your nose or mouth. what will this do for him. my dr put me on no food for 4 days and pills and drinks that would be cleaning me out for those days also. so he thinks your stomach isnt digesting your food.
so what is your surgery set up for. must be shortly after they clean you out?
