Hello Everyone..I know this is a Topic that is all over the place but actually I need to ask...I'm going for a Colonoscopy/Endoscopy tomorrow and The thing is the Prep Is SOOO..........Bad! I had to take 4 dulcolax at 5PM and an hour later drink 10 oz bottle of Magnesium citrate. Ok so it is 3 hours later after the mag citrate and I have SOOO..much Freakin Nausea UGH! The thing is I'm using the Bathroom..Who wouldn't right! HHEheh..But my stool is already pale yellow and some coming clear..

Now I have to down another bottle of Magnesium citrate at 4:30am ...(I already have Constant D after I had my resection surgrey..So I'm always cleaned out 3 hto 4 hrs after I have eaten..)The thing is What is my stool suppose to look like after all this is taken?

This will be my third colonoscopy But I don't remember the 1st one and the 2nd one I know I was in a massive amount of discomfort to even care about what was in the bowl HEHehEH....I don't know if I will be able to Drink the solution in the morning! I really don't! Honestly I don't think I will need it if my stool is already pale yellow...But It's too late to call someone about this...The Nausea alone is AWFUL!

it looks like pee in the water (basically complete liquid)  then it is a good prep, and you feel like your peeing out your butt
p.s. you might have someone go pick up some cream for your butt

MMMNAVY's got it right.

I think the nausea is from the pills, so the rest of the prep should get better. I know the pills made me feel awful last time I used that prep. Hope it turns clear real soon.

If it comes out and feels basically like pee then it's GREAT prep? Hey I can live w/ that! But would I need to take the 2nd 10oz Bottle at 4:30am ? if it's what it is suppose to be? I just don't know If I could even look at the bottle w/ out vomiting! UGH...........

Your stool will likely never be anything other than a yellow/green color, due to bile. I'd consider my prep done if I were you. I sure wouldn't drink any more of that stuff

As long as it's yellow/green/clearish and it's 100% liquid, you're fine. I know the last time I did my prep, I never got there because it took 7-8 hours to kick in, and it was still good enough to do the scope though.
