I am doing the golytly prep this this time & it says that you should have strong bowel action 1 hour after starting the prep. I did the magnesium citrate & then started the golytly 3 hours later, and it's been 6 hours since I started with the magnesium citrate. I have had only a couple small piece of stool, no D. No strong bowel action.

I don't know if it's the IBD, I have that lump, I think it's all stuck. I did have 7 BMs though earlier today before starting the prep, so I thought I was kinda already cleaned out.

Am I doing something wrong? I have been chasing the golytly with propel, is that wrong? Why haven't I had D yet?
Live for today, for tomorrow you might just get hit by a semi.

Just be careful with propel because it has fake sugar in it and you might get cramps!

No, it doesn't. It has sucrose syrup. (not that that's good for you either, but no splenda ar aspartame...)

Cool - I used to drink it but had to stop because of the Splenda. They must have more than one version.
