Just had my first screen today. Am home now to snooze off the meds. The prep wasn't bad at all....but then again...I love gatorade. The Miralax was tastless and had no grit to it. I had no problem getting down 2, 320z bottles of gatorade mixed with the miralax over a 5 hour period. And the 4 dulcolax tabs too.
Going wasn't a problem at all. No cramping .....I actually couldn't tell if I was peeing or doing the other!! LOL
I had myself very worked up over this...as I am an IBS sufferer and had myself convinced the prep was going to cause ER visit type of stomach pain.
I thought so much laxative for such a tiny person. I'm only 5'3" and weigh 105 pounds. There's no way I could have as much food in me as a 200+ pound person. But the GI office said....nope you still have to take as much as a much larger person would. Go Figure!!!
Anyway.....this morning when Dr came in and we discussed my IBS-C condition....and how I effectively manage that, (by using laci le beau diet tea) and diet modification. This GI is totally fine with using that product...as the stimulant is "natural" not chemical, and there is absolutely no research to indicate it's harmful short or long term. I have been using it daily for 12 years.
He said he was going to use 75mg of Fentanyl and 3mg of Versed. The girls came over and said this is going to act very quickly Vickie.....and that's all I remember.
When I woke up in recovery....he came in and told us that the lining of my colon was pristine and in great condition....I'm in my early 50's now. One of the cleanest he had ever seen....and that he was going to start recommeding the tea to more of his IBS-C patients. Oh yeah...the best part....I don't need another colon exam for 10 years!!!
Now....I'm off to the sofa for some outstanding nap time courtesy of the twilight cocktail!
