Re: Bowel Prep - What to expect??

Did anyone get the chills toward the end of the bowel prep? I have been in the bathroom all day and now I have goose bumps. I don't feel sick at all and don't have a fever but I am wondering if not having much in me is making me feel cold. I am under a blanket now and feel a little better. Crazy...I can't wait to get this over with tomorrow. I think I am the first surgery so I am happy about that.

Okay, so I drank the bottle of magnesium citrate at 8:00 this morning. Pooped once about 10:00...and nothing since. ???????

Seriously...did you drink all 10 oz.? I feel like I have fire coming out of my backside. It is finally slowing down on the amt. coming out but I started at 7, took my second dose at 11 and have been on the potty all day. I hope it starts to work for you soon. Best wishes in your surgery.

Re: Bowel Prep - What to expect??

Yeah...seriously. I expected to be doing what you're doing all day! I drank the entire 10 oz this morning. I hope all hell doesn't decide to break loose while I'm trying to sleep tonight!! I wish you the best as well...

I hope it doesn't either. I thought for sure, I would be able to get to my daughter's first volleyball game tonight but I can't get away from the house. I was so bummed.

I plan to be praying tomorrow morning as I go to surgery, for all the ladies having their surgery tomorrow. Wishing you all the best.

Re: Bowel Prep - What to expect??

Been sipping Mag citracte and diet grapefruit soda cocktail. Not as vile as expected, though it's giving me some belly gas! The soda definitely kills the taste (I made DH try a sip and he agreed, it wasn't bad but it certainly ain't a gin and tonic!)
