Re: Bowel Prep....YUCK!

Oh I just finished my bottle of bowel prep concoction. 10 fluid ounces that I mixed with water - for a total of 2 glass fulls. I am sitting here trying to keep it from coming up. My surgery starts at 7:30 tomorrow morning.

I would much rather give myself an enema.

Re: Bowel Prep....YUCK!

You'll get detailed instructions about everything at your pre-op. I got several printouts of instructions, then the hospital called me a day later. You'll need to do pre-op bloodwork, but bowel prep is not always required. Depends on the doctor.

I get to start my Miralax in an hour. Whoohoo. That is my lunch today.

I will probably also have some books in the bathroom waiting for me. And I wonder how many crosswords I will be able to complete...

smkatt - I hope work goes OK for you. My doc's nurse to me to stay home today.

I have to take 4 dulcolax with 8.3 oz of miralax mixed with 64oz of gatorade at 1pm on Wed. I have till midnight to finish it. I hope it doesn't taste nasty.

Re: Bowel Prep....YUCK!

I am a regular Miralax user - every day for IBS-C. It does not taste like anything, in my opinion. If you're mixing it with gatorade, I would be very surprised if you even notice a difference in how the gatorade taste.
