How do I get thru this hunger? I am so hungry I just keep thinking, only just a little bite. Didn't know where to put this,.

So I am having my first colonscopy and I've not eaten all day today. And I am so hungry how do I get my mind of it. It is the kind of hunger that you get after you've not eaten and your grumpy to the point of almost crying.

  • Are you allowed to drink water? If so drink LOTS of water. Fill your belly with water.

  • Or a liquid diet? sometimes that is ok and good for a bit of a change. Otherwise, stay busy- and go to bed early. :-)

  • I say get a good book and lay down in bed and immerse yourself in it until you are so tired you fall asleep...I'm so sorry for you

  • I did it by reminding myself that if I ate even one bite, they'd cancel it and I'd have to do the prep all over again the next month - I did NOT want to do that awful prep again so I dealt with it. Thankfully I did it over a weekend (colonoscopy was on a Monday) so DH was home and I just spent as much time as I could in bed.

  • I've had 3 surgeries and wasn't allowed to eat 24hrs before them either. Drink plenty of fluids and change up the kinds (ex. water/Gatorade.juice) pleases the pallet a bit. Also, popsicles help trick yourself into feeling like you ate something. I was allowed jello also but it didnt help me because I didnt eat it...I hate jello

  • Clean your teeth. I do not know why this works, but it does. Other than that stay busy and as far away from the kitchen as possible.
