Well guys I failed the colonoscopy prep miserably. After starving myself all day, I started taking the phosphada soda (sp?) at 3:00 as stated by the directions, and 3 hours later at around 6:00 in the evening, I vomited everything! I called the nurse at that point and she tells me to immediately take the other half of the bottle,to which I did, but after about 2 minutes of drinking it, I vomited that too! Needless to say, I couldn't go through with the colonoscopy so now it's scheduled for 2 weeks from now. This time they are going to give me a antinausea medication to take just before drinking that "POISON" so hopefully that will keep me from getting sick. I honestly don't know if I'm going to be able to do it. I was just so so sick this past time. My little 100 pound frame just can't handle not eating all day and then to top things off, taking that nasty liquid. I have never tasted anything so FOUL in my life. Does anyone have any suggestions? I need to take this test to put my dad's mind at ease. He is currently undergoing treatments for stage 3 colon ca, so both he and the gi doctor who is also a good friend of mine, thinks I, along with my brother should have this test done.
Thanks for any advice guys,
