I just had to do 'clear liquids' the day before. Then nil by mouth from midnight. Test was at 10am. Altho the nurse admitted they normally do them at 8am as people are pretty wiped out by then! she was right! Anyway, I had exactly the same problem.. slow colon but small bowel was fine.. whizzed through in 20 mins in fact. No other prep and I didn't take laxatives. Good luck and hope you get the results you're looking for. X
