I'm 25 and had a total colectomy done last November. I went into the hospital because I dehydrated from being pregnant and having severe morning sickness, then my colitis flared up causing toxic megacolon. My colon perferorated, and I had an emergency colectomy, became severely infected, which brought on my miscarriage, then I had to have a "clean out" surgery to clean out all of the infection caused from the perforation. I was in the hospital for a couple of months after that battling the infection. I had to do physical and occupational therapy for a few months to be able to walk again.
Now, I'm doing really great. I've gained all of my weight back and can walk normal again. Here's the problem:
I began bleeding via my rectum again since the surgeries. I went to the doctor, they did a scope and said that I still have disease in whats left of my rectum. The doctors now don't know if what I have is colitis or crohns, so they plan to scope me through my stoma and my rectum tomorrow to check things out. They gave me a perscription for something called moviprep to prep for the scope. And, I can't eat all day today. Also, on the instruction paperwork, it says to take Dulcolax.
Should the prep be any different for me since I do not have a colon for it to go through? Has anyone esle gone through this without a colon? I don't plan on taking the stool softener because, well, I don't know how much softer my stool can get. But, does anyone think that I will have to drink all of the prep? It just doesn't seem like I would have to do the same prep as someone who has a colon would have to do.
