I have been really sick for the past few months with severe D, nausea but no vomiting, and I've lost a lot of weight. Based on symptoms and my sibling's severe bout of Crohn's, they think it is likely Crohn's (although I am hoping it's just IBS). I have a colonoscopy scheduled for Tuesday.
My first colonoscopy 10 years ago didn't go so well. The prep made me vomit horribly, as did the sedation they used for the procedure (I vomited for the next 3 days). [They found UC, but that ulcer went away after a few years on Asacol and they changed the diagnosis to IBS without further testing (just a sigmoidoscopy)].
This time, my doc prescribed OsmoPrep pills. Has anyone tried these, and if so, did they cause vomiting? Should I ask for an anti-nausea prescription? Any words of advice for this type of prep?
Also, does the sedation make anyone stomach sick? My doc said they may have used general anesthesia 10 years ago, which is different from twilight sedation he plans on using. However, I am sensitive to most pain medications and sedatives, so I am nervous. I am even considering asking for no sedation/pain medication, b/c I don't want to be in bed sick for the next 3 days.
I apprecate your responses. Thanks!
