I am so seldom on here anymore. I was on quite a bit until a few years ago, mostly under another, similar name, but I irretrievably lost my old login credentials...too much info? I will get to the point.
For my next colonoscopy, still a few months out, I am going to be expected to drink 3 (THREE!!) bottles of magnesium citrate, followed by a massive amount of miralax. I can handle the miralax, but I don't think I can possibly down three bottles of magnesium citrate. I thought I was going to die when I had to drink two for my last scope. Unfortunately, two was not enough for a good prep, so my doctor said I would have to drink three the next time.
I've used the same mag citrate/miralax prep ever since my diagnosis in 2008, and I love my doctor, but I swear I will fire her and find another doctor before I do this prep! However, I superstitiously feel like keeping the same doctor is good luck, so I am torn.
So, what prep can you all recommend that doesn't involve so much of the mag citrate? I'm thinking if I can propose an alternative to my doctor, she might accept it. Otherwise, gah...
I continue to do well. I was diagnosed stage 3c in 2008 and I haven't had a recurrence, so I don't have anything to complain about! They've found polyps during my last two scopes, so I am currently on a three year plan.
I'm sending you all my very best wishes.
