Since Monday I have been prepping for a colonoscopy and endoscopy that is scheduled for Thursday at 1:30. The doctor told me to have only liquids beginning Monday. I have been having clear freezies, gatorade, apple juice, water, jello. I am really backed up. I am worried I won't be ready for the test. I started Pico Salax at 4pm and took another dose at 6 and I feel nothing. I don't even have a sensation to go to the bathroom. I think my colon isn't functioning properly, the doctor feels it could be colonic inertia. I can't help but wonder its something more. I have been suffering since December, missed university, its just too much now. I get constipated for 4-7 days at a time, horrible nausea, sharp pains, and when I am lucky enough to go to the bathroom I strain badly, I'm literally hugging my knees.
I'm sorry for Too Much Information.
I'm scared to feel afraid, what if its a growth or something?
I would appreciate some reassurance :)
