OK ladies that first gulp of the cocktail is down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It didn't taste nearly as bad as I had thought. I'm sure by the end of the gallon I'll be singing a different tune.

Well, off to wait to see what happens and I think I need another drink (do I sound like a lush)!

You are in my thoughts

I don't need to have a preop cocktail and was very glad. I've done them before and know what you are going through. Just have a good book or magazine in your bathroom for when it starts to take effect.

Good luck!

Surviving the preop "cocktail"

Hi Ladies,

I have to say that even though I have never had to take the "cocktail", I have seen my husband go through in prep for a colonoscopy. Is there anyone out there with suggestiong on how to make this process easier? Surely there must be! I think I am dreading that more than the actual surgery. My husband can barely get the whole gallon down without wretching on each glass he drinks.

Hoping to hear from you,

Hey EmeraldCity... I've never had to do a gallon of anything! But the stuff I did have to take was pretty terrible... I was told to drink it really cold and if you can use a straw at least you bypass the tastebuds!! Good Luck!!
