Unhappy Colonoscopy prep advice?!

Hi everyone. I'm having a colonoscopy tomorrow and I'm dealing with the prep now. I was supposed to do the GoLytly prep but it made me nauseous and I couldn't drink it, so they switched me to magnesium citrate. I barely got that down. Anyway I'm hanging out in the bathroom and I'm in a huge amount of pain. It's gross to admit but it burns extremely bad everything I go. So much so that I threw up. I've always had that problem. If something was painful it made me vomit. I'm really upset because I don't know what to do to stop the burning except stop going to the bathroom, which obviously I can't.

Any suggestions on how to stop the pain?

It's so bad that I've almost passed out. I know I sound like a wuss but I'm being honest here.

Oh wow, by now you're probably at the doctor's. I hope you were able to finish the prep and had the c-scope.

All the preps cause burning of the anus from going so many times...I usually hop into the tub and use a hand shower to relieve some of the burning...then apply a hydrocortisone cream.

How are you doing?

It's all a matter of perspective!
