Hey guys,

So much has been going on but I really need to know if I am supposed to take this stuff or not.

I have my take-down tomorrow and I thought I just had to do a clear liquid diet but the nurse gave me bowel prep stuff. Isn't that going to dehydrate me? And what is it clearing out? There is nothing in there...

Anyone know?

I'm waiting to hear from the doctor but just want to know what he is going to say.

OMG! I spent hours trying to get people on the phone who know. Finally the on-call surgeon called me and said "NO!" And them my surgeon called to calm me down... The nurse gave me the wrong packet! That could have been so dangerous. I'm glad I listened to the surgeon and not the nurse.

Thanks Ohio76. :)
Packing my bag and getting ready for surgery. :)
