Bowel Prep today not so bad


I'm going in tomorrow at long last and am currently doing the dreaded bowel prep with Citramag.

You know what it's no where near as bad as i thought, sometimes ladies too much information can scare you.

Had a slice of toast and cup of black coffee Took first dose at 10am, it took about 90 mins to really start working but as you can see I am having time between "visits " to type

Took everyones advice, am armed with large pot of vasaline, aloe vera wipes and soft paper. Am drinking plenty of fluids and generally dont feel too bad.

I am in the Uk but guess things are done no differently here than in the rest of the world.

Good luck to everyone about to do the deed.

Re: Bowel Prep today not so bad

Glad it's not been overly difficult for you. I honestly found that I was as anxious about bowel prep as I was about surgery itself. Both went better than I expected. Anticipation is the worst.

Remember to stay well hydrated today. I thought I had tried to, but they had trouble getting an IV started on me when I checked in at the castle.

Re: Bowel Prep today not so bad

good to hear!! I am getting ready to start mine @ noon, according to my Dr. directions. Mine includes 2 ducolax tab at noon followed by a miralax gatorade mixture at 4 and 8pm, then a fleets enema at bedtime. I think the hardest part for me is not having any food. Best of luck to you tomorrow!! see you on the other side
