MRI would be so much easier to tolerate!! I hope that the MRI becomes an option for more of us. It wasn't suggested & I hadn't heard about it before, but will ask before my next scope!
But I got thru this prep much better than my last prep. I took 1/2 of pain pill (oxycodone) when I started the Miralax even tho I wasn't in pain yet. That pre-med did keep me ahead of the pain. Then about 4 or 5 hours later, I took the other half of the oxcycodone when I felt pain from the fistula. So some pain, but not crazy bad like the last time. I think what made the difference was taking a pre-pain med to get ahead of things & lots of vaseline & balneol on the fistula affected area. Phew, so glad it's "behind" me now.
taking Tacrolimus, 6MP, Gabapentin (for peripheral neuropathy), immodium for D
Had CD since 2001, RV fistula since Jan 2010
