I’m not allowed to eat anything today, pre surgery.
Theyve also told be to take various strong laxatives which would give me diarrhoea, and warned me to stay close to a toilet. It’s quite extraordinary to me that the hospital nurse that I had the consultation with didn’t talk about this stuff ( she just said to take the laxatives ).
How on earth am I supposed to rush to the loo when I feel the need?
For a start, I don’t ‘ feel the need’ , I feel nothing at all. What she is effectively ‘ condemning me to ‘ is 24 hours of soiling myself in my wheelchair… that’s NOT going to happen, I can assure you.
I’m already doubting the expertise of the hospital staff.
