Thanks for all the encouragement. The pills are called visicol and you end up with dulcolax. I had a hard time keeping down the colytle and the nutrylite stuff so they thought this might be easier on me. I was just wondering what the effect are going to be like.
I am trying not to be nervous about this, but I know it is normal. I will let all you know what the results are. Thanks for all your encouragement and if anyone has taken these pills, let me know.

    Hi Franny,
    Don't worry about it. It's certainly not the most pleasant thing in the world, but believe me you've been thru a
    lot worse. It's important that your colon be clean so that the Doc can get a good look at what's going on in there. I've used the
    Nulytely, and also the pills. Neither one is pleasant but it's over before you know it. Good luck,...Carl
  • I'm going Friday for my annual follow-up colonoscopy too, so at least there's another person out there going through it about the same time as you :D and that be me ;D

    We will just sail through this procedure, okay!

    Hugs,
    Monika

    Hi Franny'
    Good luck with the scope ,mine has come and gone , they removed one smallish polyp with some discolration of the mucosa so now I have to wait for biopsy results , the GI is confident that it is too small to be of any real concern I actually woke up during the procedure and watched her remove it so at least i do know it is gone ,thinking of you ,Kindest regards Ron.
