Well yesterday I had my pre-op where I had multiple bloods taken, the usual questions about allergies and next of kin, and picked up my bowel prep.
I am down as a day case so I should be home on the evening on Monday.
On Sunday I have to take my ‘picolax’ sachet in water at 8am. Apparently it’s liquid dynamite and I am going to spend most of the day on the loo. I have to drink plenty of water and clear fluids and I can only eat jelly or clear soup.
I am checking in for my op at 12pm and I really hope I don’t have to wait too long.
I have felt quite ill the last few days and I think part of it is the anti biotics I am on for my urine infection, withdrawals from the prostap and a slight cold.
As long as it stays off my chest and my airways are clear it should go ahead. Mostly I am exhausted so I am coming to bed at 7.45 on a Friday night!
I get better faster when I rest so it’s the best thing for me.
I got all of my work up to date before leaving at lunchtime today and apart from packing my bag I am prepared. I just want to get it over with now do I can get my recovery underway.
