Tomorrow I'm getting a flex sigmoidoscopy done (it's my very first time, I had a colonoscopy done in July but I was sedated so I don't remember a thing) so I need to start the preparation tonight with some milk of magnesia and tomorrow a couple hours before the sigmoidoscopy with some enemas. I can't eat anything starting tonight at 6 PM and my sigmoidoscopy is at 3 PM tomorrow.
I'm also on 30 mg of Pred, and I usually take it in the early morning at about 6:00 AM (I wake up everyday at like 4:00 AM to work). Since I can't eat or drink milk, this means that tomorrow I won't be able to take my pred on my scheduled time, so what should I do??? is this gonna cause me trouble because of the lack of steroids for like 12 hours or not? should I take tomorrow's dose right after the sigmoidoscopy or should I just skip that day?
I'm still a beginner in this whole think so I would really appreciate your help!
