Preparing for Picolax - my Pre--Surgery Bowel Cleanse
Tomorrow I will need to be doing a pre-surgery bowel cleanse using Picolax, which is a very vicious laxative. I have to take the first sachet at 8am and the second one tomorrow afternoon. For me the drug starts working within 90 minutes, after which I will be regularly chained to the toilet, so lots of toilet roll and moist toilet tissue needed, soothing cream, and also possibly continence pads to wear at night and on my way to hospital on the morning of 23rd May. Needless to say tomorrow will not be a particularly pleasant day. My diet is also very strict - starts with cornflakes and milk. Lunch will be boiled egg on white toast and supper.....clear jelly!!!
