Help! I'm doing bowel prep and threw up

Maybe I'm reading too much into this but I started my bowel prep at 8am and finished drinking the miralax at 950. I felt really nauseas after but tried to relax. Well I threw up all over the place and now I'm afraid I didn't get all the Meds because I threw up. I'm sorry if it's tmi but I tried to call the nurse hotline and no one is picking up. I'm not sick, it just hit me outta nowhere. Any advice?

Re: Help! I'm doing bowel prep and threw up

Hotline isn't too useful if no one picks up! I'd try a bit later. They told me if I threw up mid way, just keep drinking, but you already finished so that's not helpful. Do you even have more meds if you need them? You'll know within a couple hours if it's working. If the hotline won't answer I'd call the Dr after hour number, if there is one, or possibly the hospital. I wouldn't take extra on my own. You may have still kept enough down. Good luck today, and tomorrow.

Thanks. Yes I bought extra because they were out of the single bottle of the perfect dose so ihave plenty of extra lol. I called my sister, who is a nurse, and she told me to wait a while. If I stop going to the restroom for more than 2 hours go ahead and take more. But only a couple of doses. I left a messages for the doc so hopefully I'll hear back from him. I would seriously lose my mind if I had to reschedule because of this lol!! Plus I get to go in tomorrow with broken blood vessels on my face from hurling. Lovely day I'm having right before surgery!

The sheet my surgeon gave me said to drink about a cup every 20-30 mins. If feeling nauseous, then to drink small sips. I haven't started mine son has his last soccer game (tournament weekend) at 2:15 (we're out in Hawaii, so quite a few hours behind mainland), so once that's over with, I'll be quarantining myself in my bedroom/bathroom. LOL! Good luck and I hope things get better!

If you got most of it, you are probably ok. I am usually fine until the last bit or so and then get really sick to my stomach. Hopefully you will hear from your doc what to do. I wouldn't panic because the docs are used to this. Or at least mine was. It is really more common than anyone realizes. Hopefully what you have taken will help you and there won't be any need to take more.
