i do it as a "shot" too -- keep it in the fridge until I need it, then I split the bottle into 2 shots with a full 8 oz ginger ale chaser for each one. gahh, that stuff is awful but gets the job done. I also start eating light a few days before and switch to only liquids 2 days before the procedure. Drink lots and lots and lots of clear liquid, and pick up some sensitive skin personal wipes (i use the alcohol-free pampers baby wipes with aloe and vitamin E).
The enema isn't the same as the phosphosoda, and personally, I'd rather do the phosphosoda. I had to do two fleet enemas before my flex sig, and that was worse for me.
Whatever you do, you will need to plan to be near the toilet once to take it. The enemas work almost instantly (unless your doc says to hold it longer
). my first fleet drink from 2 yrs ago worked in 20 minutes; the one i did this year took almost an hour.
