Of course the only part I worry about is the prep. I have an issue with texture so I know that I wouldn’t be able to drink the RX prep. I’m will be drinking a mixture of Miralax and Gatorade instead.

So I’m looking for the “recipe” on line and I find a page “Preparing for a colonoscopy” and they do not pull any punches

The afternoon or evening before the colonoscopy, drink a liquid that will trigger bowel-clearing diarrhea.

Well, okay

Pick up some medicated wipes (for example, Tucks or adult wet wipes with aloe and vitamin E) and a skin-soothing product such as Vaseline or Desitin — you’re going to be experiencing high-volume, high-velocity diarrhea.

This is sounding more fun as I go along

Wear loose clothing and stay near the bathroom. Better yet, once the preparation starts to work, stay in the bathroom — because when the urge hits, it’s hard to hold back. Consider setting up shop near the toilet with music, your laptop, magazines, or books.


PAR-TAY in the bathroom. But not the kind of party anyone would want an invitation for.
