I also have pouchoscopy questions...

Hi All, due for my first pouchoscopy next week, ive seen the responses to bubbas post below.  Had my pre-op consultation today and the doc was useless and he had no clue about pouchs and the prep required.   I think he was a trainee...not worried though as my surgeon is actaully doing the scope....anyway

 

1) He told me to stop taking loperomide 5 days before the procedure.  Is that really necessary?  it will lead to a difficult time in work if so...

2) He didnt know when i should stop taking the fibre supplements (i take inulin which makes a clear liquid)

3) I also only have one sachet of Klean-Prep (doctor thought i should have 4, but i did double check at the time and my surgeon was certain 1 sachet was sufficient).  I dont have an enema or anything.

 

Any tips / thoughts gratefully received
