Thank you to everyone who contributes on the forum, it has been a comfort and great help as my operation nears and the anxiety levels are very high. I am due for a lower anterior ileostomy, I think it's called, on Tuesday. I have to take picolax on Monday and it states supper between 7 and 9 pm and no solid food after 12 lunchtime. I am unsure whether I can drink water after 9 pm, pr nothing therafter, if anyone has had the same, I would welcome advice.
It did state on the original notification of my operation, I could drink water until 7 am, but was given the different sheet at the pre op assessment.
Thank you again and good wishes to all.
