Honestly, I find it odd too, prepping in the hospital. I'm coming up on 14 yrs, I've had MANY colonoscopies, never in the hospital. I know the hospitals have GI wards, I had some follow up testing done when I was first diagnosed, in one of those GI wards, butt I believe those wards are mainly used for people already admitted to the hospital (ie someone shows up in the ER with a medical problem, they do a colonoscopy on person to rule out cancer, etc)
Hope everything goes well for him.
