hello all....Well I am going to have my 1st colonostopy on Monday to start to deal with the loose stools I have been having for the last 20 years....yes I said 20 years. I ws using Lomotil (1 a day) for a few years and it was working excellent but now md. says she will not give me anymore until I have a colonostopy. So Monday is the day. I have a question for those experienced ones on this. I lift weights 5 times a week,I have built myself to the point where I am very happy with myself at 38 years old.My thing is that I am always tryingt o gain weight. I am currently 235 lbs. Am I going to lose alot of weight with the prep kit and not eating the day before the procedure? What are others experience? Like Ive been hearing some say they lost 5 lbs.Believe it or not that is my biggest fear of this entire procedure....IM not worried about
the procedure itself,im worried about
the not eating the entire day and losing what I have been working my ass of for the last 4-5 years. Any input would be great to put my mind at ease.
Thanks in advance to all!!!!!!
