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
