Bowel prep today:(

I have never in my life taken any kind of laxative...this should be fun! Yikes!!

My instructions say to eat a regular breakfast and then start the clear liquid diet. I don't usually eat anything for breakfast but I had a big ol' bowl of cereal this morning! LOL

Hugs and prayers to my fellow August 9 buddies!

Re: Bowel prep today:(

I did the cleanse thing for my colonoscopy. It was not as bad as I had imagined

but I am glad I don't need to do it for my surgery.

Good luck today and tomorrow! See you on the flip side

Re: Bowel prep today:(

I only had to drink one 10 oz bottle. Same as you I told everyone my master bath is mine only. And they have to fix their own dinner this evening.....I didn't want to fix something I couldn't eat. Think hubby is gonna take then out for pizza.

Hubby is going to grill steaks tonight and I'll make them some roasted potatoes and veggies. Then, I will lock myself in my bedroom and pout while they eat! LOL

Totally agee with Policebound! The day before was the worst for me too. I've had to do this prep many times due to colon polyps/Celiac Disease and this was my third time this year. Was relieved to get it over with it!!!

Best Wishes on your surgery!
