I know my dr will specify once i get closer, but my surgery part 1 is september 11, and i am working right up to that date, do i need to take the day off work the day before? i know i have to drink that stuff "halflitley" wrong spelling..
on the RX it gives you choices whether to start at noon or 4pm the day before and then i am really confused because they hospital told me not to eat after midnight the day before surg..of course im not going to eat! LOL
my question is then:
1. do you recommend not going to work the day before to prepare
2. do i need to be COMPLETELY empty, like a colonoscopy? it would make sense, i dont want anything leaking inside when they slice it...
3. how mobile are you they days after the surgery? you have to have help going pee etc?
my name is Isaac, 24 year old guy, UC since I was 17
remicade for two years, worked OK but got married and was told it could cause birth defects so I quit feb 08. my wife reminded me that i still had D most of the time while on remicade.
ALWAYS sick with something either mild or serious, all related to UC and the medication
