Bowel prep today

I started my bowl prep this morning, my dr said if I mix it with gaterade it was better. the box said it takes two hours to kick in.... grape gaterade did not make it taste any better at all!!!! and two hours my butt!!! 5 min after drinking it and I have been sicker then a dog since. I go in at 10am and they will start around noon but when will this bowl prep wear off????!!!?? I have to take my last bowl prep around 5 and I am already truly miserable

Re: Bowl prep today

What type of prep are you doing? Just curious as I have to do mine on Wednesday. I have to mix Miralax with 64 oz of gatorade and then take 2 potassium something or other pills with 32oz of the mixture and then 4 hours later drink the rest and take 2 more pills.

Re: Bowl prep today

I think the bowel prep was actually worse than the surgery itself lol! Hang in there, I started my prep late afternoon and was done "going" by midnight before my surgery. It made me feel very nauseated and sick also but when everything is out of your system you will feel better. Good Luck!

Re: Bowl prep today

doxilover, did you also do the Miralax one? I start mine around 1:30, they wanted me to start earlier so I wouldn't be going until midnight. I'm really hoping I don't get nauseous from it.

Re: Bowl prep today

Yes, I also did the Miralax mixed with Gatorade. I was on a liquid diet all afternoon then started drinking the Miralax mixture at 5 in the evening along with 2 Dulcolax tablets. My surgery was at 7am the next morning and I was definitely cleaned out. If you feel nauseated they say to drink the mixture slower.

Re: Bowl prep today

My box I got from wallgreens says super bowl prep kit. It said to start it at 12 then do it again at 7 and you will be done by nine. instead I started it at 9:30 my second round is at 430 and I do not think I will be done going until midnight. I hate it! I took a nap, trying to sleep the time away but now I am wide awake and worried I wont sleep tonight lol

Re: Bowel prep today

Hang in there everyone. I had surgery November 28, 2011. I had to do the Nytely(Spelling?) . My doctor also gave me Rx for nausea. I tried the stuff with the flavor packet attached to container. I drank as much of it as I could. Not all. I told my doctor. He said as long as I didn't have any solids and drank liquids I should be fine. I had chicken clear broth & jello with prep. It's horrible stuff. Sorry but really have as much of it as you can. It's for your own good. I was supposed to do 2 liters and did @1.5 with a lot of ginger ale to keep hydrated. This will be the hardest part for you but you CAN do it. Best wishes to all going through this!!!🌺
