Bowel prep -BLECH!

Davinci hysterectomy tomorrow morning at 7am. I'm in the middle of bowel prep now which started at noon (4 hours in). I have probably had 6-7 doses of the PEG 3350 w/electrolytes; I was supposed to be taking 8 oz. every 10 minutes. After the 1st couple of doses, I went to every 15 minutes until things started to move. I was told to do this until I got a "clear" return. Just how "clear" are we talking here?! I've reached a point where I am gagging as I try to drink anymore of this crap!

Re: Bowel prep -BLECH!

Clear as it was explained to me is when what comes out looks about like what's going in. I took about 3/4 of the 4 liter prep for my colonoscopy, for the hyst I was grateful to just take 2 bottles of mag citrate. I was told the quicker you get it down, the faster you get to "clear", and if you drag out the drinking process it can take longer to get there. But when it barely goes down, it's hard to drink it fast. They suggested chewing strong mint gum before a dose, to numb the taste buds, if you have any of that around. I've done 3 bowel preps now, so I feel for you. Good luck, at least it will end soon.
