I'm on the clear liquid diet today and Im already starving! I have to take those bisacodyl tablets tonight and then do an enema one hour before my appointment. The test is to see how big the anastamosis is and then another test to see how much of the "stuff" they put in me I can push out. The doctor said they take an x-ray after they put the stuff in me and then they send me to the bathroom to try to go and when I'm done they take another x-ray to see how much is left. This doesn't sound fun. I had that stuff put in me before and I did not like it one bit!
Right now though I am starving and I have a headache. I've been drinking broth but it doesn't help too much. I could have some jello but I don't really like it. Oh well, it's only for 24 hours...
