MJ, I start a week from Monday. MSKCC has a protocol that I follow for colon emptying....
They had me start Metamucil 1x a day every day 2 days before my simulation. And told me to continue it daily now through my 40 treatments. Also told me to take 2 Gassman extra strength tablets the night before and morning of my simulation, not sure if they will have me do that during treatment.
My first week I am scheduled for even9ng treatments, th3n the next 7nweeks early morning so I’ll ask if I can take Metamucil 2x a day. Can’t see why not
Ask your treatment team about
Metamucil, it seems to work well for me.
