... Hi Louise, I have to totally agree with Claudia. My prep was not bad. Two tips 1)drink the meds chilled and 2) switch to a straw when you think you cannot take another glass. I only had 1 bowl of broth the day of my prep. The day of the procedure I felt nothing. Later that day I was eating regular food with no problems. I am waiting on results from the one polyp they...

He charted it all up as Dysfunctional or Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I asked if there was any tests to rule out anything else. He said a Barium Enema but added they wouldn't find anything.

... Hi Fiona, You probably don't have anything to worry about, but for your own peace of mind, push for the colonoscopy. You know your body better than anybody and you know when it is doing something that isn't normal. We argued with doctors for nearly a year before we found one that would listen to my husband. Good luck and let us know what you find out.:) dee (5 replies)
