I am having a colonoscopy Monday...very nervous for lots of reasons. Preparing for it today is not going to be easy, but getting through the sedation well is probably something I should be more worried about. Since my asthma is so bad, I run a pretty high risk of not waking up at all after any kind of sedation...and doing this without sedation is not an option for me!! I have a question about the prep...This is what I am SUPPOSED to do (and part of it I've already done): Take 2 dulcolax 2 days prior to procedure in the evening (did that last night). Then take 3 glasses of Fleet and clear liquid mix at 4 p.m. today, and 3 more glasses at 6 p.m. today. Then 2 more dulcolax at bedtime tonight...colonoscopy is tomorrow morning. But after taking the Dulcolax last night, I've been up since 4 a.m. suffering the dreaded effects of it (this is the first time I've ever taken a laxative of any kind). I am beginning to run clear already. Does this mean I can skip the other stuff, or at least most of it? I think I will take part of the Fleet just to be sure I'm clear. If I run clear now...which seems very early...is there any chance that more food will digest and make it not so clear? (this is gross, I know). The last thing I ate was last night at 10:00 p.m. Then took the dulcolax at about midnight. By the way, the dulcolax made me feel so horrible, it was as if I had a stomach virus...nausea, chills, cramps, of course the diarrhea. I never want to take those again! (but they cleaned me out pretty good so I guess it was worth it).
