How should I prepare for a pouchoscopy?josh
As a patient, you play a critical role ahead of your pouchoscopy through a process called bowel preparation. There are a few different kinds, which can involve consuming a liquid or using enemas. Your doctor will determine what kind is best for you based on your medical history and their particular preference. Some of these products require a prescription, while others are available over-the-counter. They all have the same goal: to remove everything in your colon prior to the procedure. You may experience some skin irritation around the anus due to the passage of liquid stools. You can prevent and treat this skin irritation by applying ointment to the skin around the anus before drinking the bowel preparation medication.
