OMG, I am so sick and nauseas from the bowel prep, moviprep! I drank half of the 1st container and just couldn't drink it...I just can't get it down! So, I took dulcolax and switched over to miralax. I am so nauseas I can't drink another drink of anything...not water, nothing. If I drink another sip of something, I am going to barf....what am I going to do? I am having liquid poop, a yellowish color, but still pieces of stool in the liquid. I have been working on the clean out all week due to the colonic inertia. I feel just awful and think I am going to vomit any minute! What am I supposed to do?

Tracy,

That didn't take long! If you are going yellow water poop with just a few flecks of real poop in it, I think it's OK (unless a ton is lurking somewhere)...I would say you are done. In colonoscopies if you have just a few flecks of poop left in you they can just spray them away. If in doubt, just call the answering service and have the doc call you. If you have gone a ton, and this is all that's left, I think you're OK.

Best of luck my friend, Rosemary

PS In a few days, when you're up to it, see the thread under my name. I tried to give Chris all the scoop I could think of. Some of it may help you too. Try and get some sleep if you can.

When I've done the bowel prep I've had two really bad experiences - one I was vomiting - I hadn't eaten anything in 2 days so they weren't as concerned. I had to stop drinking it because I just couldn't keep it down.

The other time was that it didn't start working for 6 hours. I was EXTREMELY bloated and I called the advice nurse. They called me back about half an hour later when it finally started working. I got about 2 hours of sleep that night.

I'd sleep some of it off - try an enema or two (depending on how many it takes your bowels normally). Drink water when you can.

Hey Tracy,

Hope the colonoscopy went well. All I had to do with the bowel prep for my first normal colonoscopy before I got in all the trouble was mix a gallon of water with the powder in the gallon container of Colyte. Refrigerate it to cool it. Then drink 8 oz every 10 minutes and walk around so I didn't bloat. Then after glass 3 I went a solid move, glass 6 another move, then it was clear from then on.

I think you overdid the Miralax before starting the Movie Prep, just my thoughts. Glad you are OK and all went well from our chat.

Rosemary
