I need to have a barium enema test and I'm wondering what kind of prep other people have done for this. I asked the scheduler at the hospital about it and she checked with a manager who said just have nothing by mouth after midnight.
Is that what other people have done?
I would think that I'd need to go on a liquid diet the day before at least. I just had a pouchoscopy and did the Miralax prep and, honestly, I did not do a great job since I was still passing a little stool in the morning.
I will call my doctor to confirm but I want to see what others have been told about the prep for this kind of test.
Oh, and if you have horror stories about this test, don't tell me. I'm already nervous.
