I have to have a 20 minute procedure to remove a cyst on my scalp tomorrow. I am afraid of getting into a taxi and having the runs on the table. I will be awake with local anesthesia. I probably can't take Pepto because I can't take anything with aspirin, salicylic acid, can cause bleeding during procedure. I am not as scared of the surgery as I am of my nerves causing the runs. I think those of you with IBS-D understand the fear. Is there anything I can take or eat today that might prevent this? I hope someone sees this today :-( Thank you.
