I get to have a lovely sigmoidoscopy Tuesday to determine why I keep bleeding and lately have those terrible cramps back.
I just picked up my "prep bag" tonight and I have two dulcolax pills to take Monday and then two ENEMAS to take Tuesday. I am to have a broth/light liquid diet both days. I am to take the enemas back to back only 1/2 hour to 1 hour prior to the test.
The enemas SCARE me. I am worried I won't be able to use them right, clean myself out for a good test AND that I'll lose the first one after inserting the second. Also, am I going to do this on the bed, in the bath??? Will I have urgency to go like I did from golytely?
One more worry--my test site is 45 minutes from the house. I think I should do the enemas much sooner than 1/2 to an hour before.
Help!! I am a nervous wreck and want a good, clean test!!
