The first two preps were before surgery. I know I don't have as much "pucker" as I did before. I'm not sure why because there wasn't any work done on the sphincter. Anyway, that may be the reason. I slept on several layers of towels on prep night. I don't know if I'd call it urgency or just leakage. I hardly felt much urge at all. It just came out.
Had a colonoscopy this morning, which went went okay. Had the opposite problem with the prep, though. MoviPrep -- drank the first batch last night at 5pm as instructed. Waited. Waited. Nothing. Took the second batch at 9, as instructed. Nothing again. Finally, at 10:30, results. (Maybe NOW I'll be believed about my constipation. Hah!) I have to admit I was a little concerned until things began moving along.
Also, I got the stuff down using a straw, which was suggested here. Worked rather well. Turn it into a game. Ten to 12 pulls on the straw got each 8-oz dose down. If you can do three pulls, you can do six, and if you can get to six, ten is not that far away.
After last night's prep, today was a breeze. But we knew that. Stay in as good a mood as you can without morning coffee and you got it made.
My big complaint is the cost of MoviPrep. It's highway robbery. $40 for less than 10 dollars worth of PEG 3350 and some other ingredients that show up in Gatorade and Twinkies. For shame to overcharge like that. And it's typically a 2nd or third tier on most drug plans, so the patient takes the hit. Thanks to the drug maker for yet another reason to want to blow off the test.
