Re: Prep for colonoscopy

I've been asking for years to be able to use the newer preps that don't require you to drink massive amounts of foul liquid. I keep getting the "GoLYTELY iS tHe BesT PreP" excuse. Because the actual DOCTORS have never had to take that shit themselves !!!!! :twisted: I posted 4-5 years ago...

Re: Prep for colonoscopy

Hi Jaynee. It's good to hear from you. My doctor normally uses the Miralax, Gatorade, etc. prep. That's what I used for my last two preps. The first time I used it, I barely tolerated it, and by the morning of my procedure I was really nauseated and bloated. The last time I gagged down about half of...

Re: Sarah DeBord

I was saddened yesterday to hear of her passing. She spoke at one of the survivor events for Get Your Rear in Gear. Sarah was an inspiration and advocate. She will be missed. My condolences to her family.

Prep for colonoscopy

I haven't been on this site in a long time. It's going on 16 years since I was diagnosed. Well this year is time for my colonoscopy. I have not done well with most preps. My doctor suggested trying Suprep. I don't mind paying, since my insurance won't cover it. Actually, the doctor said they have ne...

Re: 10 Years and Counting

Hi SkiFletch. Thank you for your update. I'm sure like many other "oldies" we think of each other and wonder how they are doing. I am so glad that things are going well-that made my day! Your message gives hope to so many that are going through the battle. Continued good luck.

Re: O/T - my furbaby has cancer....hard last weekend

Jaynee, I am sorry to hear this. We went through this last September, and it is heartbreaking. On the logical level, you know you are doing the right thing, but on the emotional level it's awful. I remember during his last month or two, if we went away and came home, we'd hold our breath until we sa...

Re: SNOW DAY - in the SEATTLE area!

Hi Jaynee. Yesterday we got 3-4 inches of what was supposed to be a light snow. The only problem is Monday we had freezing rain, so the snow is on top of the ice. More snow is expected tonight and tomorrow. Since we had the polar vortex last week with record low temps, and the schools being closed f...

Re: Colonoscopy at 19

Drinking the prep with a straw helps. You can bypass some of your taste buds. Like Lee said, it's a good idea to start early. Sometimes drinking less at a time helps. Some do just the opposite and have no problems-they chug it down and get it over with. If you feel like you can't keep it down, call ...

Eric, where do I begin? I've known you since you first came on the board. You were a fighter, so positive. You could look cancer in the eye, and give it "the finger". Cancer wasn't going to stop you from riding, cancer wasn't going to stop you from gardening, cancer wasn't going to stop yo...

I was just leaving the house, and something said to check this board. I don't know what to say right now. RIP my friend.
