I never thought of mixing it with ginger ale or apple juice--that sounds like it would really help to kill the taste a good bit--what good ideas!
pb4--I am with you, I think I can handle it best if I break it up into thirds as you said. For some reason, it being cold does not seem help me much, also, if I try to chug it I almost throw up...! But I am excited to try mixing it with sweet things...
Oh, and Cecelia, I am doing this as a prep for a barium enema; however, this barium enema is only being done so that my surgeons can see what is going on in my colon (they think, and I think, that I have a strictured area that is causing me much pain, and I am scheduled to have resection surgery in the next 2 weeks).
I know that my surgeons once again will propose that I have a complete ileostomy and move on with my life (that is why I have been lurking around the Ostomies board as of late)...but if I only have 1-2 small strictured areas, I am just going to opt for the resection at this time. I am only 26, and have read about
great results from resections here (although few people have had colon resections--most get the small bowel resectioned). Thanks for asking, though. :)
Have a wonderful day, everyone.
