    Default Ultrasound

    Tomorrow I am going for a pelvic ultrasound due to some pain i have been having and have been told to drink 1.5 litres of water 1 hour beforehand. Can anyone who has had an ultrasound
    before tell me if I can get away with drinking a bit less? Not sure my bladder can cope!

    Whenever I've had one I try and drink as close to what they say. It's always around 1 litre that I can hold and I let them know that. It's never been an issue for me. Hope all goes well

    I usually drank 1 Litre on the way there! A 20 minute drive! Never had a problem

    I had a pelvic u/s a few days ago and was told to drink 800mls 1 hour beforehand. My bladder was more than full enough to see and I actually had to let a bit out lol

    I work in radiology and we only ever told our ladies 4 glasses if water 1 hour prior. 600mls is fine. if you struggle holding water, 2 glasses 1.5 hours prior to your scan is fine too.

    Where we go its only one glass of water! Very reasonable

    I don't think it's possible for a person to hold in that much water. Especially if there is a long wait too on top of that!

    In addition: you know your own bladder better than anyone else, you need to feel like you could pee, but not be uncomfortable. I never drank the required amount if water for any of my scans the only thing is some sonographers will send you away if you aren't full enough
