Great colonoscopy results

Haven't posted in a while, but just wanted to share the good news; my 3 year post op colonscopy was again clear!!! (colectomy in 12/03, stage III, 6 months chemo). Scans showed NED in November.
My scan was delayed becuase I couldn't complete the prep in December. I have failed with the go litely, phopho soda and citrate of magnesia. Something about the electrolyte concentrations in them makes me hurl something fierce, and last time I couldn't keep enough down to clean me out.
GOOD NEWS: I did the Miralax prep this time without a problem. 250 grams of tasteless powder dissolved in 64 oz of clear gator ade and 4 dulcolax tabs. I didn't get nauseous nor horribly dehydrated and came out clean as a whistle. Wasn't nearly as harsh and irritating in the hinder parts, either.
Continued to best to all here,

Hi Judy...great news gal...am sure each time we get good news it gives others a world of hope! Good tah hear from yah...I am often awol too...but thats another story. I like to refer to tha "hinder" parts as "any which way but loose!...he!he!".....if yah get my meaning. I am going away again for 2 weeks and when I get back some nurse is gunna have pleasure in using me as a pincushion for my CT. The contrast sometimes causes me a little grief so don't look f/ward to it...argggh!Hopefully all will be clear for this test.
Stay safe n well gal....Ross n Jen
