Had colon resection in December and 3 days later had emergency surgery due to leakage. 2nd surgery had 10 inches of small intestines removed and a temporary ileostomy. It has been a hard journey. I had severe dehydration after I was home. Just within the last week we found a system that is working for me with hydration and absorbing nutrients. I've finally gained some weight back and have been starting to feel stronger.
Next week I have some tests scheduled, a fluoroscopy and a camera looking, you know where. (A place a camera shouldn't go) Anyone have these tests and what should I expect? (Pain, discomfort, etc.?) I was told no food or drink 6 hrs prior to fluoroscopy. I'm nervous as I don't want to get dehydrated again. Do they make you drink something or IV for this test?
Thanks for any input.
