I see you are scheduled to have upper & lower scopes. Both are a piece of cake, but the prep for lower is by far the worst of it all. If you have ever read any of the posts on the cd board and they talk about the colonoscopy, they all agree, the prep is the worst of all.
My gi does put you under w/conscious sedation, you remember nothing. For his patients he has us on clear liquids 2 days before the scope, the night before scope we drink a bottle of the fleet crap in 24 ounces of something really cold. No red drinks. We have to drink this in one hour. Trust me, this does the job on cleaning you out. I drink mine at 4:00pm and I am up & down late into the night making a mad dash. This is after being in the b/r for 8hrs.
I don't know what kind of prep he has recommended but I thought I would tell you what I have to do and it will make you run clear and thats what they want.
I sometimes get sick at my stomach with this prep business or increased cramping of the gut. I have had 4 scopes since Oct of 02. One upper scope revealed h-pyloria so he treated me for that.
Since you are in ill health with the weight loss and all, if you start throwing up get to the hospital ASAP, otherwise you may become dehydrated.
Hope you feel better soon. love & hugs, Susie
