Well I have truly landed with a bang into the IBS thing. As much as I tried not to worry about my colonoscopy tomorrow the fear still took over and caused constipation- well you know constipation but stuff was coming out eventually. For the last few days it has felt like I have had stool in me constantly and was going to the toliet about 8 times a day spending about 20 mins there each time. Lovely. Also was getting quite bad abdominal pain. Once again crazy stools. unformed, External hemaroids back again yesterday so was so painful, Then saw a new thing when they were light red gel like blobs on outside of stools. Could carrots from the night before have caused this in most of my stools yesterday? They were really light brown too. almost yellow sometimes. So today now Constipation seems to be gone?? Went first thing in the morning followed by 3 times afterwards and it all came out straight away- unformed and bits. It was also very dark brown but I had 2 glasses of red wine last night so that might be it...So I start my prep today at 12 Irish time. Can't wait for tomorrow to be over. I have been worried sick as you know from my previous post about it. I just sometimes feel that my bowel habits are totally crazy and something major must be wrong but at least when I come on here I can see I am definitely not the only one. Anyone any tips for prep for colonoscopy?
