Question dr thinks i have an ulcer...

so i have to go on thursday for 2 procedures don't know the name but 1 is the tube down my throat & also getting a colonoscopy (spelling)? well i'm sure you all know what i mean. so i have to stop eating in an hr or so and i just know i'm going to have a massive problem not having anything in my stomach,i bought the crap they said i can have,soup broth,hard candy,jello but is there anything that i can take to kinda suppress my appetite for the day??? i know 1 day doesn't sound like a long time but it's going to be for me,also i have chronic neck and back pain and have been taking meds for like 10 yrs now and i think they may have just made my stomach worse!!! So this is really going to be difficult for me to do just for the fact that my stomach will be empty and i hope i won't throw up the stuff i have to take before the almighty tube weaves it's way through my innards,so any advice on any appetite suppressing ideas that are clear and not red or purple lol would be greatly appreciated...thanks

Re: dr thinks i have an ulcer...

My only suggestion is that you rescedule your endoscopy and colonoscopy for first thing in the morning.

Re: dr thinks i have an ulcer...

Hi,
I agree about having the procedure done in the morning.
I have had two ulcers amd have had four Endoscopys and two Colonoscopys.
It is extreemly important you eat the foods on the diet sheet and take the medication correctly.
It isn't that difficult I have done it four times, and so have many others and we have not suffered in any way because of it.
The last E & C I had whilst waiting for my turn the man in front of me was sent home because he had not followed the procedure before the test, so then he had to be resceduled, probably lost a days pay if he was working.
Do exactly as requested and you will be fine, I wish you well,

Solofelix.

Hi Bigspike,

With the appropriate medication you should soon be feeling a lot better.

Re: dr thinks i have an ulcer...

Hi Bigspike,
Anyone going for your procedure for the first time would be scared. I think you did great and I'm glad it went OK. As I said I have had four Endoscopys and two Colonoscopys and would still be nervous of another even though I know what it's like now.
I wish you well with your medication and you might look up diets for Acid Reflux which may help you.
Any time you have a worry or want advice we are here to offer it willingly if we can,
Good Luck,

Solofelix.
