I am having a colonoscopy tomorrow at 11am; and a upper endoscopy with diprivan/versed/fentyl. I am very scared about
the prep. I see so much about
the side effects; I have a heart condition and worried my Magnesium will be low; the prep has enough potassium.
My reason for this is I passed what they thought was a 4 inch round worm 1 month ago; patho. was negative; but my main primary doctor said it was a worm; I have never traveled to get this; only eat a lot of sushi for the past 4 years; 3times a week.
I did not take the antiparasitic med after the path was negative; my doctor said he would refer me to a gi doctor; she did a 15 min exam and scheduled me for both.
I met with the MD that will be giving me meds at the hospital and he said I should be fine.
anyone have heart irregularities; PVCs; etc. I have not taken a laxitave in about
13 years; I am very scared. Really worried if I have parasitic infection and what will happen after I start the PEG;
My husband going to do the OTC miralax (he is taking all 10 packets to be approx the same I will be taking)/dulcolax just before I start so he can tell me how he feels. He is also not eating today; we have plenty of approved juices; jello; broth.
also, why does everyone get the same amount- I am a petite person; less than 120 lbs; what happens if you can't finish it; or do u just take it until there is nothing left? or until you throw up?
Anyone have any positive effects? Is this like a colon cleanse you see on tv? anything gross 'passed' during the prep- my hubby is going to take me to the ER if i start to feel funny in my heart and let me finish the cleanse there b/4. I'm already having trips to the bathroom BEFORE I start the prep b/c I am so nervous.
It is funny- I am really hungry of course on a day when I can't eat.
Scared crapless - literally........
