Hi prep buddy
I mixed the super prep with Sprite
The lemon/like/weird cherry taste wasn't the worst think I ever had
I started at 7 and am already down to yellow liquid

I almost forgot the sensation of peeing out of your butt
It's amazing what they leave out of the brochures


Am having a lot of gas but I guess that could be from the Sprite
Not much cramping and so far not a bad prep

Did have an accident steady lost a pair of shorts
No problem put on my big girl depends and continued to drink

While it was fast I continued to go
Till about 11 pm then I woke up one an hour to
Go again small amounts
Standing here staring down the second dose
Not worried about the taste just wonder
If I will be finished by the time I have to leave for the doctor

The Coconut Water is definitely a
Unique taste
I tried to drink some but the smell taste
Made me nauseous

I usually don't have a big problem with
Dehydration he next day
As I have learned to drink stuff with some sugar
And a little salt
Side juice broth jello ice pops
I have drank it all
Last time I was so z thirsty by now
But not this time

I am able to get most of the second dose down
Just finished my liquids water and iced tea this time

Am wondering if I should try to sleep
Before I have to go agian
Or should I just stay up
Maybe I will just watch some tv

I have a small irrational fear that the cancer
Is back
No blood in the stool cat scans have been fine
No reason to suspect any problem
Just the middle of the night fears I guess

Well it's almost 5 am and the second dose has
Kicked it
It always amazes me how when you think you
Must be cleaned out that more happens
Must be the reason for the split dose

Stomach hurts butt is burning
All I want to do is to get over the next few hours

I am sitting with the a/c on with a blanket
Over my shoulders
Thanks to the hot flashes I am somehow
Hot and cold at the same time

This has been my first prep with the hot flashes
And I must say it adds a layer of crap
All night time I had to go I got an extra hot flash
With the hormone replacements
I only have about 5 a day without the meds
They could occur 20 times a day

But as stress is a trigger every time I poop
I have a short fever for a few minutes
This all stinks
Think I will try to sleep and hope my depended
Can Handel any sneak attacks

Well I survived the second dose
My exfriend didn't tell me how long the prep took
While I woke up at 12 1am 3am
Started the second prep at 3:30am
Started going again at 4am
Continued to go every 20 minutes or so till almost 8 am
Sleep for an hour
Work up to poop again then just showers and got ready to go

The bowl movements were often with a low volum each time

I would give it 2 rolls of toilet paper out of a possible 4

At the doc office waiting to go called
