Hi Karah

I would defintely add the cherry flavor the plain is pretty bad. make sure it is nice and cold and drink each serving down fast.
Also be sure and drink the entire prescription. I also did a few popsicles and I think you can do broth too. Check your instructions.
Well I had Mexican food the night before I did my bowel prep. I wanted a good last meal.
Don't worry the go litley will clean anything out.
Good luck to you. You are almost there.
Let us know how you are when you get home.

I had the Fleet stuff to drink. The doctor said that I could add it to anything clear. I chose Welch's White Grape Peach. Couldn't taste it at all.

Have you checked with your doctor as to what to mix it with?

The day before the prep day, I ate everything. Hamburgers and pizza. Then, I went for my pre-op, the day before. After 1 p.m. I couldn't eat anything, just drank water and clear liquids.

Prep---what prep???

Oh rats----didn't even think about the fact there might be a prep but it does make sense! I see the doc on Tuesday so guess I'll get the scoop then.

I had a prep previously for a colonoscopy (I told them the anemia was from my heavy periods!!!---another story!!) Anyway---I got so sick of sweet. (mine was a two day prep) You can also have broth and tea. Also, hard candies are legal. The popsicles were refreshing as well.

Good luck!!

bowel prep........

I was glad to see this subject addressed. I woke up last night with a start and the thought of enemias running through my head. I'm really getting nervous. I'm trying not to for the sake of the family, but..heavens to betsy! I'm having a LAVH on thursday. My pre-op is tuesday. Jitters, jitters, jitters! The good thing is, I trust my DR completely.

my prep is just two days of liquids. I have a ileostomy so food does not stick around to long. My surgery is Monday morning. For every bowel prep I had before they restricted the red meat a few days before. Suggestions for the day before were chicken soup.
