I had to fast for 12 hours and take 3 enemas before my first operation. The enemas were torture. I refused to take the 3rd one and the nurse told me that the operation wouldn't go ahead if I wasn't properly cleaned out. I didn't believe her then and I believe her even less now, but I was just about
unsure enough that I relented and took it (fortunately I was so emptied out by then it was much less worse than the previous two).
For my upcoming op, I only have to fast and drink six pre-op drinks. Fine by me.
Dx Crohn's in summer of 2000. (Yay )
Tried and failed: 5-ASAs, Azathioprine, 6MP, Remicade, Methotrexate, Humira.
Diet didn't make any difference either.
Had surgery 2/13 - subtotal colectomy with end ileostomy. Currently on no meds and in remission. Also prone to depression and anxiety. Ask me anything >_>
