bowel prep today

I have to work tonight until 9pm and I am wondering since I have to be at the hospital tomorrow morning at 6:30 if I start the bowel prep after I get off work tonight if I will be all cleaned out? Also my period started today yippee!!!!!!

Re: bowel prep today

Did your dr. give you any instructions? Check your paper work, notes or call his/her office and see what they advise. Personally, I'd want to get started earlier than that, other wise you might be up half the night and get most, if any, sleep on the throne.

I have to start mine today at noon. Two bottles of mag citrate. I have them chilling in the frig, hoping that helps them go down more easily. My DH says it's not nearly as bad as the go lightly stuff I've had to drink for other tests and surgery. I'm still gonna hold my nose so I can't taste it.

Wishing you the best tomorrow and I will see you on the other side!

Re: bowel prep today

Do all doctors make you do a bowel prep? I will be having a TVH. The thought of drinking 2 bottles of nasty stuff makes me want to gag right now. I am the pickiest eater there is.....very finicky!

@ Ellaone...My instructions say mix a 238g (14 dose) bottle of miralax with one 64 oz bottle of gatorade (any flavor) drink 8oz every 20 minutes until gone.
Good luck!

Re: bowel prep today

I'd think that'd be a bit late to start, but check with the doctor. Good Luck tommorow!

It helped me to chew a piece of gum when I drank the magnesium citrate. Still wasn't the best, but it masked the taste a little bit. Good luck ladies! I'm sure you guys are all going to do great!

Re: bowel prep today

I am having a TVH on Tuesday and my instructions say to take the mag citrate at 3:00 the day before. I would double check with your doctor, but I think the sooner the better.

Re: bowel prep today

Oh this mag citrate is nothing! It's a little fizzy like soda. I have the lemon flavor. I highly recommend it if you have a choice.

Re: bowel prep today

I thought the mag citrate tasted like sour lemon heads candy...strange I know. It was bearable. I get to do it all over again now because I ended up not having surgery on the day I was supposed to, just biopsies. Grrrr! Now to do it all again next week...
