Re: magnesium citrate not working

Did your bowel prep eventually work ? I needed to do one in JUly...it was Go lightly...it never worked and my surgery was cancelled...My Dr. acused me of not drinking it, I was devastated ! 3 weeks later i tried again and it still took a long time to work and i never reached that endpoint of being totally clear. I did Movelightly for my colonoscopy and it worked like a charm.....I'm so glad its all behind me.

The magnesium Citrate started working @ 6:30 this morning 12 hours after I drank the stuff and even then I'm not going very often only about 4-5 times. I called the nurse and she said I should be clear by surgery time. I hope so!

Oh no! Really ? Maybe I should take magnesium C. Twice then? I just ate a pretty big lunch since it would be my last meal,so to speak. I woke up with the trots this morning already. I just don't want my surgery canceled for any reason! Should I take 2? What do you all think?

Re: magnesium citrate not working

I would be taking the 2 bottles since one bottle only loosens everything up and it takes the second bottle to get it all out.

It did finally work but not to the extent that my bowel prep for my colonoscopies. I had about 6-7 movements total. It did not seemed to be an issue at all surgery went on as scheduled.

Re: magnesium citrate not working

I'm doing okay my right ovary was tangled in adhesions so it took alot of work to free the ovary from the abdominal wall and to remove it so I'm very sore. Today has been the first day I have flet a little better. My recovery seems to be slow but I did have complications during surgery so considering all that I think I'm doing well.
