Bowel Prep today :(

Well, today's the day. Laxatives at 2:00 and Mag Citrate at 7:00. For those of you that have had this experience, did any of you wish you had started earlier in the day? I have this fear I'll be up all night with this business.

I've done all sorts of bowel preps, and imho, what works best is to do exactly what your DR says, exactly when he or she says to do it. If you do it too soon, you may be quite dehydrated by the time you get to the hospital and there may be trouble either placing the IV or with your surgery.

My experience has been that most of the preps work fairly quickly (done within a few hours); I've never had one keep me up at night.

Good luck with your surgery!

Stay near the toilet!! I hated my bowel prep. It was almost as bad as the surgery. I have a weak stomach so it was not fun to drink all of that nasty stuff. It's all down hill from there baby! Soon this will be all over and you will be recovering.

See what I mean? I think they do this so that when it comes to the surgery, you go, "wow, this is nothing compared to the bowel prep!" It is all a conspiracy to make the surgery not seem so bad.
