Just joined today - new to this!! I have finally been diagnosed with 'colonic inertia' after almost 20 years of doctors, tests, special diets, etc., etc., etc.
I am scheduled for a total colectomy on Wed April 6. Excited to think there's an end in sight - terrified of what's coming for me.
I have begun the 'cleansing' process (joy!). I have to have at least 2 days, instead of the prescibed 1 day prior to surgery, because my system just does not work.
Does anyone have any suggestions to make drinking this bowel prep any easier? I've had so many colonoscopies, I can't count them all, but was unaware of forums like this, having only just been officially diagnosed.
I'd love to hear any input, suggestions, ideas, anything?!?!
Thanks to anyone that has some input!
