colonoscopy

Come Monday 9:50 am I will be having a colonoscopy.I have a question about the moviprep prep.On the box it has 2 ways to do it,one way is all in one night,the other way is do part one night and the other part the next morning.How can I decide which is less traumatic on my system,I have acid reflux so whichever way I do it,is not gonna be pretty.Anyone have any suggestions how I could get the solution down easier,without vomitting it up?Any replies will be appreciated.

Re: colonoscopy

In case anyone wants to know about the moviprep it tastes like really salty lemonade.I made it thru first liter now, gotta drink second liter in 1 1/2 hers then drink more liquid on top of it.Wish me luck or prayers whichever you believe in .

Hello
I don't envy you however last time I had colonoscopy I was able to have the capsules and just drank water with them. Much better, still have the end result, ie sore bottom however much easier going down. Do you have these capsules where you are? I am in Qld Australia and would never go back to the glycoprep or golightly by choice. Good luck and hope your results are better than you'll think they'll be.

Re: colonoscopy

Thanks for replying to my post,seems like you're the only one that did.I had terrible time getting the prep stuff down,couple times I had the dry heaves.I'm not sure about the pills, but you can bet I'll ask about them next time.If I have to go thru this procedure every couple of yrs,it's not gonna get any better.One thing I can say the prep stuff sure cleans you out.I'm looking forward to my little nap at the docs office,whatever they put in that iv sure knocks me out.Geez it was hard drinking awful tasting stuff on an empty stomach can't wait to eat some solid food.I have acid reflux disease and bad gag reflex,so it was tough going .Getting ready to leave for docs,thanks for listening.

Re: colonoscopy

Everything turned out OK ,just a slight hemmoroid problem.They handed me a paper asking what I thought of the moviprep,I told them they would'not want to repeat what I thought about it to anyone,ha haaa.Thanks for listening.

Re: colonoscopy

No worries. It is just good to get those things over and done with.
