So I started my colonoscopy prep 6 hours ago and still no bms.  Should I call the doc and tell her?  I'm scheduled to go in for the scope at 11am tomorrow morning.  I took 2 dulcolax at 12:30pm and started drinking my 64oz of fluid with the super sizer bottle of Miralax mixed in at about 2pm.  Shouldn't have pooped by now?

I usually drink 2-3 rounds of the gatorade/miralax mix before I start. If you're worried, call the doctor. That's their job. Also, I'd probably rest up, because you'll be up all night. Could you have a blockage?

Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength

No blockage.  I had a bm this morning before starting prep. And I finished the Miralax cocktail.  I can't stop peeing from all of the liquid but no bms.
