Hi. I have colonoscopy fri. Due to stomach pain I've eaten nothin for a no. Of days. Will I still have to stay off work when I take prep the day before?

If a polyp or something else is seen and a biopsy is needed then electro cautery is used and any residual gas in the colon from an incomplete prep may be ignited if you are a methane producer. But if you have not eaten much then the prep may not be, shall we say, as productive, but it would still be effective. ...Read more

I cut my tibia tubercle & it opened up a bunch of fluid into my knee (6 stitches). m. what can I do to reduce the swelling quicker?
Cut in tibia tubercl:
How long ago? How long is the wound? I think is about 6-8 cm. And the depth into the synovial of the joint.
Obviously required repair. Was this done in layers? 1-2, 3 layers, or just the skin. Was the repair done in the ER or in a walk in clinic? Are you on antibiotics? All this issues are very important. An injury of a joint with damage of the synovia must be treated with aggressively.

Any way you should be examined by an orthopedic surgeon, who will have the opportunity to feel the joint, assess the mobility, and the cartilages, and start you on antibiotics or change them if required, and in the event of drainage take a specimen for culture and sensitivity.
