I had to have a full clear liquid diet the day before, then had to drink the magnesium citrate at five pm. I was in the minority and thought it was ridiculous that I could have no food the day before. I snuck a couple crackers and it was fine because I did the prep. Do not get the purple flavor. It was so bad. I really don't know how I got through it. Actually my friend called right as I started and she was sweet enough to distract me while I drank it. It took me a half hr to drink the whole thing. It will be over soon and then you'll have your functioning j-pouch. Yea!
Diagnosed 2006. 1st step of 2 step j-pouch 1/3/11. 2nd step April 4, 2011. So done with this disease.
