pre-op drink

Hi Angelface,
I see we have the same surgery date and I will be drinking the go lytely right along with you. The pharmacist told me it tastes better cold (I highly doubt that though )lol. I think it will be nasty no matter what you mix it with but a girls gotta drink what a girls gotta drink lol. Best of luck to you with your surgery...and the golytely.

pre-op drink

I got the lemon flavored Golytley when I had to do a bowel prep. My dr told me not to mix anything extra in it .
I did chill it and that helped some. What I did was to drink each glass as quickly as posible and that helped a little too. I made sure that I stayed near the potty and had some soft wet wipes handy.

I won't say that the bowel prep was worse than the surgery but it wasn't much fun either. But, if your dr ordered it, you must do it.

Best wishes.
