Went for colonoscopy this morning at 8, but Doctor stopped proceedure because MoviPrep didn't work after following Dr's directions strictly: entire day before: completely liquid diet no milk, no red or purple; started first MoviPrep@ 6:00pm and finished followed by 16onces water @ 7:00pm; started second container @ 9:30pm and drank 16 onces of water when finished @ about 10:30. Did not have to go yet so I drank 2 large mugs of warm tea. Wasn't until after 11:30 it started to work. Tried to go again @ 1:45 before going to bed and nothing happened nor when I got up to urinate at 5. This MoviPrep
was as hard to get down as swallowing a giant pill without water and I felt dizzy and chest pain as I drank each portion which went away inbetween. About 5 yrs ago, used old gallon size stuff with no problem. Drank it down fast and it didn't take long to start working and cleaned me out completely. Colonosopy showed no polps then, but having warning signs: change in bowel habits, pain, bleeding, positive result for blood with rectal exam was sent to GI doctor. Now I have to wait again for new proceedure(with old prep) and I'm worried about these symptoms.
