After taking my first round of moviprep last night and actually gagging back my last sip of the dose, I panicked at the thought of having to have another round the next day (today). So, I read through about 4 pages of blogs on different sites and a few people mentioned lemons. I thought about how "back in the day" lemon did an amazing job clearing up the horrible taste of tequila, and thought, why not try it. So, I cut up a small lemon in quarters.

This made my post op recovery quick. Once the epideral wore off I did have quite a bit of pain. I was planning on going home after the procedure but my bladder had different plans.

hi, My Grandmother use to say the that food would to digest well do to junkfood, it would get stuck to your digestive track. So she would give us Castor oil (Laxative) every other month to clean us out, my husband started to get a bad, realy bad smelling burp, sick. so the second time he had that smell i gave him some Castor oil, and been giving him some every month, and he has not had that problem any more.

Endoscopy and frustration

Posted 08-06-2010 01:35 PM by janewhite1

Today the asthma is acting up a little, AND my voice is all weak and crackly from the steroids. I'm tempted to go back on the Advair, then I remember how awful my stomach was while I was on it.
