Colonoscopy Prep Question

I'm going in tomorrow for my first colonoscopy. I'm using the Moviprep and thought I read somewhere where it says "until the liquid runs clear". So my question is does the til the liquid runs clear mean clear as in water color clear or clear as in no more fecal matter?

I finished up my first liter 30 minutes ago and except for the first 2 bowel movements, everything has been pure water only slightly tinged. So I'm wondering if I'm totally cleaned out? I've been having diahrrea for the past 2 weeks so I doubt I have much in my system anyway.

Thank you in advance.

Re: Colonoscopy Prep Question

I had the very same question, however what I had to drink was so awful that I couldn't keep it all down. It was called nulytely and I was supposed to drink a full gallon. Anyway, I only made it through 3/4 of it on thursday. My stools were also tinged but no fecal matter in it so I am pretty positive that, that is what they meant. I went for the colonoscopy yesterday and I guess it was ok because they didn't say anything about not being able to see with the scope. The prep is the worse part of it. The actual colonoscopy is a piece of cake.
