I hate bowel prep

I mean I really hate the bowel prep! I drank my stuff at 6pm, expected to be done with it and resting by midnight, but no. Here it is 3am my surgery is at 5:30 and its finally kicking in. First it made me sick to my stomach and it was all I could do not to vomit the sour drink back up, then it takes 8 hours for it to kick in! Ughhh why? To top it off I accidently woke up my poor hubby getting my coat since the bathroom is freezing cold and he feels he should be up waiting for me to feel better. Such a wonderful man, but I'd sure rather he slept through this. So here I am tired, cold, feeling dehydrated and wishing I could be sleeping but instead I'm enjoying quality time with a toilet! Lol
Sorry for the ranting!

Re: I hate bowel prep

I just had my hysterectomy yesterday. I had the same problem with the bowel prep. Choked it down at 5pm and it didn't start kicking in until after 10:30. I went to bed at midnight and had a couple of more trips when I got up before my surgery but all has been fine. I did mention it to my doc and he asked if I had "slow bowels".

Re: I hate bowel prep

I have a slow system, so I've bumped up mine to start 24 hours prior to surgery. My doc had me starting at 2 pm, with the surgery scheduled at noon the following day. I am also starting 2 days prior with aloe Vera juice to help kick start... Soooo, if you also have slow bowels, ask you doc because they may make anna adjustment to your prep or start time and let you get some decent rest the night before! Good luck ladies!

Well its all over with now. Everything was removed, and I fought to be allowed to go home and won. Hubby and I are staying in a motel tonight so dogs don't bother me. Hugs to you all!
