Bakomom, just breathe!
The preps do suck a lot hence the reason why i stopped doing them. All i do is drink liquids for three days before the colonoscopy and im all cleaned out. Ive done this for my last 5 colonoscopies. I used to throw up from the preps from the pharmacy so this way is less debilitating. Apple juice really cleans me out so i always include that as a sure fire way that nothing is in me.
Definitely get sedation! Ive been awake for two of mine and i much prefer being knocked out. Propofol will make you loopy but its worth it if you think you'll have pain being awake.
