UPDATE: Colonoscopy completed. The Doctor mentioned that when she saw my name come up on her schedule she was "surprised" and I said "why, because I'm still alive?". she also mentioned that she doesnt always remember her patients but she remembered me and my husband, maybe cause of our Last Name, which is unique.

Anyhoo, no tumors or polyps in the colon...yeah!!!!!

Oh and for the record, that OSMO PREP was a peice of cake. No cramping, nothing. Started working right away. Slept thru the night until about 5 am. There was still some stool in the colon though, higher up. I think 2 days of liquid diet would be the better route.

............................................................................................

I just picked up the prep for my 1st Colonoscopy post DX 3/2009.

I'm hoping, as a reversed ileostomy patient and frequent visitor to the "throne" that I will be cleaned out rather quickly.

I realized that I made a gyn appt for the day AFTER my colonoscopy....damn, rotor-rootered in all the wrong places in one week

wish me luck!!!
I may provide a play-by-play since I can't go anywhere and I need to keep my mind off food

I hope it all works out really good for you as well. My calendar is just packed with appts as well - up off one table and hop over to another table.

Just like old used cars we are - always up on somebody's else rack:)

I went 40-hours with NO FOOD. You can do it, Peggy...mind over matter.

Kenny, best of luck to you and your surgeries

Craig- seriously, off one table and onto the next, that's a good one!

I take the last 12 OsmoPrep Pills and back to the throne...

Best line of the month. On a related note, I just scheduled my once-per-3-year colonoscopy for November 1. Just finished appointments with medical oncologist and urologist (all okay).

Good luck Peggy. I pray you are able to fast when needed. What flavor packet did you choose?

Haven't used the Osmo Prep. For my three colonoscopies and the fourth one that I scheduled today for mid-October, it's Miralax and Dulcolax (with Gatorade) for me. I'm on the 3-year plan for colonoscopies and my last one was October of 2007. Good luck with my colonoscopy and gyn appointments.
