    So who's had to do that Colonoscopy prep?

    Even though no one gives a crap, I'm still going to talk about this because I never had one before.


    Today I had to get a colonoscopy but they gave me 2 pills I had to take at like 12pm, then I had to put 8.3oz of Miralax mixed with 64oz of gatoraid and the next morning I had to drink 10oz of this horrible stuff called Magnesium Citrate. That Miralax, I can't even look at gatoraid anymore, ugh.

    Who's had to do this type of prep?

    From what I heard the miralax is one fo the best ones but I guess there is another prep where you drink a gallon of some salty liquid.

    It is not nice at all... You feel cold, weird and weak after it... So it is not nice once you get started, but after words it feels nice

    the normal prep, $#@! and eat and drink plenty of water. That will help

    Water is the most important

    eat? you can't eat when you are doing it. lol it's all clear liquids. defintely had to drink water even though I was drinking that stuff 8oz every 15 minutes and they want you to slam it down every 15 minutes.

    I eat and then drink loads of water and it cleans me out... Again water is the most important thing to have for this, it helps with cleaning you out quicker

    I've had a few in my lifetime, the Cleansing used to involve a Powder called 'Picolax' (the UK name), that stuff messed you up!! the speed and ferocity at which it worked was quite scary at times!
    But more recently its been Citramag (UK name) and 10 Senna tablets.

    The Cleansing Prep is by far the worst part of any procedure i have had to deal with. It's knackers you out.

    The Colonoscopy itself is a breeze! 20-30 min of blabbering anesthesia tripping, followed by about 24 hours of farting uncontrollably.

    EDIT:
    Although you are awake during and often watching the live feed on a screen, your memory of it afterwards may be a little foggy. But sometimes they have equipment to record the scope, and (in the UK atleast) you can ask for a copy on dvd for free. (incase you are interested in seeing what they are looking for first hand.. it's quite bizzare to watch.. quite interesting)

    Yea, it's never nice. I dread the day i get told by my doctor they wanna go another round, but there's usually a few years between, just about enough time to recover, mentally.

    MiraLAX
    laxative. Natural, gentle constipation relief.

    Picolax is the pimp daddy of laxatives and you better be sitting ON the toilet when you take them. Have plenty of moiturised bog roll standing by.

    I would click the like button, but it is not working
