Cystic Fibrosis and a colonoscopy



Okay, I am REALLY hungry now. I haven’t eaten anything solid for two days in preparation for a colonsocopy tomorrow. What fun! I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone but if it has to be done, then it has to be done. I decided to write a post about it because there might be others out there having to prepare for a colonoscopy and sometimes it helps to know you aren’t the only one going through this process.

Having Cystic Fibrosis means I am lucky enough (!?) to have to fast for double the time in order to get cleared out for the colonoscopy. I have had to take two sachets of Klean Prep on the first day and then another two on the second day. Nothing happened the first day which was a worry, especially after reading that things should start to happen 2-3 hours after taking Klean Prep.

Thankfully today has been a bit better but now and I am just ravenous and can’t wait for it to be over tomorrow. I bought soups and clear sweet drinks but found that I couldn’t eat most of the soups as they weren’t clear enough. Hopefully I will be given the thumbs up and will then be off to a neraby restaurant to eat something solid…can’t wait.

I am a bt nervous that there might be a problem but hoping that my little bod is functioning as it’s supposed to. Sorry for those of you who havent enjoyed this post and think it’s just TMI. I don’t often write such personal blogs!
