Ugh, I knew it was coming - it's been 7 years since son's one and only colonoscopy - the doctor wants to do it next Wed. I haven't told son yet. He is still in bed, but has already been up twice to use the restroom - not a good sign. He's been flaring for a couple of weeks.
I only got to talk to the nurse, but doctor didn't say anything about adding any other meds at this time.
The clean out will be the Miralax/gatorade/ducolax - How is this one? Nurse said it is pretty gentle and not as much risk of dehydration?
Son has done the GoLytly in the past and daughter did the two day clear diet/mag citrate.
Son is NOT going to be a happy camper when he hears this, although I know we are long over due and I am kind of curious after all these years what is going on in there. Son's original dx was IC based in part because the prometheus test was negative for both Crohn's & UC, although the biopsies pointed to UC.
Thankfully, for the first time the scope will be here in town - 3 miles or so from our house. That will make things a bit easier.
I am not looking forward to telling son this news....
So how have you all found this clean out regime to be?
Mom of Son 17 UC dx 07/02, Lailda 2 per day, Azasan 75mg, Cortafoam (when flaring), folic acid, L. Reuteri, Culturelle, Zyrtec, Iron, Vit/Min
Daughter 10 UC dx 08/07 Colazal 750mg x 3, 6MP 12.5mg, Iron, Vit/Min., Culturelle
