Re: Bowel Prep hint

My doc said if I choose to do a sea salt flush prior to bowel prep...he has no problem with that. As for actaual prep...it will be dulcolax , miralax , and gatorade ..... I can handle this!

Re: Bowel Prep hint

yes, make sure you make your list of ?? out before hand. You don't want to forget to ask. I have three lists. One for my surgeon, one for the Pre op Clinic and one for the Anesthetist. I WANT to be informed. NO ?? are silly ??. (My Dr is so patient with me, as I ask a zillion each time I see her!! GOOD LUCK ON YOUR SURGERY DAY

Re: Bowel Prep hint

From what I have read, it is packets of powder that you mix with water, and has an 'orange' flavor to it. More palatable than the other stuff. I SURE hope my Dr allows me to have that instead. STILL have to take the Ducolax from what I am reading, but that is pill form.

Re: Bowel Prep hint

the things we do! I guess the only saving grace about the bowel prep the day before, you are so busy 'going' you don't have time to stress about the next day (surgery day). LOL GOOD LUCK on your surgery. MY date is the same. DONT have a time yet, but hoping its early in the am!!

Yeah, that's what i had. the powder with the flavor. it was still yucky but you just swig it down and don't think about it while drinking it. to me, that's the only way to drink it.

Re: Bowel Prep hint

Haven't done the hard part yet - but did drink the mag-cig....I found grape flavored with a bit of carbonation at CVS and it tasted good!! Maybe I really need some medical help huh? anyway now I wait.....Just thought I'd let you know the drinking it part was fine - they also had cherry and lemon flavors I think...the grape tasted just like grape juice and that's all.....
Take care all

I'm having a LAVH on 10/17/2011 ... and will need to do a bowel prep. Doctor told me to take citrate magnesium ... but I cannot drink the stuff so I asked for the Visicol tablets. Thanks for the reminder of the baby wipes and ointment. Blessings to you on your surgery, Butterfly

I don't know how they choose what they do but my MD said I'd have two enemas. Not sure when. I don't know that I could drink all that stuff.
