Ok that was weird....bowel prep related

I have never had to do bowl prep before, I gagged the lemon flavored stuff down, I honestly thought I was going to vomit.

I'm shocked that there's no cramping! I really expected to be doubled over in pain, so not the case (atleast so far).

TMI - it's literally just falling out of me, the most bizarre feeling.

OK back to your regularly scheduled programming LOL

Hugs to all!

Glad everything is "working out" okay for you!! Bowel preps are just awful! The hard part is over, so just get some good magazines in the bathroom, a nice scented candle and some moist wipes and you will be good to go! to you!!

Just got back from my pre-op and no liquid diet and only a fleet enema the night before. Wow. I was all prepared for a day in house on the throne.

That's great McLila. I'm not looking forward to my liquid diet and bowel prep on Monday. I hope it will be cramp free, but I won't know until I do it.

Mine was cramp free and was fairly easy but the taste of that stuff - I chose lemon/lime - just gagged me. The first bottle at noon I chugged down quickly - the 2nd at 3 - I choked down every swallow. Ugh - makes me gag just thinking about it.

Mine's lemon/lime too but it also falls under the category of 'beggars can't be choosers' as my friend so kindly offered me all the bottles I needed for my bowel prep. I took two and hubby can always 'run over' and get another if need be. (He gets a ton of them from the VA because of the medicines he's on and he hates the stuff too)
