I am scheduled for a c-scope on the 21st. I went to the doctor a few weeks ago and he told me he wanted to do this to find out how my colon is. They do not have a deffinite diagnosis as to what is wrong with me. Anyways, I asked him before I left what kind of prep I was to have for the scope. He told me nothing at all. Yesterday I get the paper work in the mail with my date of surgery and all my instructions. It is telling me to do the regular prep, to be npo after midnight, nothing to eat or drink, not even water the after midnight the night before. My scope is not till 1:30 pm. Has someone screwed up or what? I cannot go that long with out water, would I not dehydrate with my stoma. Should I call the office to make sure or what? I am confused. Maybe whoever scheduled it is not aware that I have an ileostomy. Any advise would be appreciated.
