My 5 year scope is coming up in August and I'm already anxious about it.....and, of course, the prep.
They Rx'd me Preopik which hubs had a few years back BUT.....I am doing the Gatorade/Miralax/Dulcolax prep.
I figure that if places like Mass General, Cleveland Clinic, and MSKCC (to name just a few) use this prep (on the internet....all the directions), I'm just going to use it.
Funny....my friend was due for her scope last month and her doc Rx'd her the ever so horrid GoLytley (who ever thought of that ridiculous name???). I told her about the Gatorade/Miralax/Dulcolax prep but she was too scared to try it. She knew, from past experience, that she vomited with the GoLytely so she talked to her doc about an alternative. Guess what they told her to do??? The Miralax/Dulcolax protocol. If these docs know it is a viable solution....then for crying out loud....give that option to the patient.
Me, I'd rather spend the what....$15 on supplies for a more tolerable prep. I couldn't care less that my insurance covers the Rx'd prep at $0 cost to me. Results are the same!
Ron....should have put this at the top of my post....CONGRATULATIONS! You truly are an inspiration to all of us!
