I thought this prep was going to go so well...  I made it half way through that jug without having any issues - such as the fullness feeling many of us get.  I made it through all but three glasses.  I started vomitting nasty stuff - very yellow acid/bile tasting along with some white foamy stuff.  I was able to get down one more glass after the vomit, but couldn't even think of drinking another w/o being nauseated beyond belief.  I think my GERD was very aggravated :(
 
Anyhow, this morning, after just passing a yellow liquid (translucent) last night, I am passing small globs of mucous this morning.  I wouldn't be very worried, but they're yellow!
 
I hope I didn't mess this up!  My last scope five years ago, things came out clear pretty quickly.  But I was flaring severly at the time.  This time it's very mild in comparison.
 
BTW - my "stomach" woke me up early this morning.  It sounded like the dinosaurs were trying to fight their way out.
 
I need to be at the endo center in four hours...  It's the final countdown!  (sing it!)

I wouldn't worry about the mucous being yellow. I'm sure the doc will still be able to see fine. On my last scope, I was still going to the bathroom in the morning and I asked my doc about it being yellow and he said that it was just left over residue. The mucous you have is just probably from your colon being aggravated from the prep. Sorry that you had to go thru that though - don't you wish they could make an easier prep????

I think the prep is a kin to some sort of torture. Seriously - there has to be a better way! Making someone go to the bathroom 30+ times is very wrong. (Yes, I did count up to 30. After that - what does it matter? My bum is super raw and not happy with me. Thank goodness for Desitin and Aquaphor.)

I did some more reading online and did find that clear, yellow, and green clear fluids being expelled is normal. I didn't find anything about mucous though.

One interesting thing I found: A lot of centers use dulcolax AND the yucky-lyte prep. I've never had the dulcolax in addition to the PEG fluid.

I AM SO HUNGRY IT HURTS!!!

Red - Thanks for the info! It really helped ease my mind. I was freaking out and hoping it was for nothing :)

Yes, the mucus is just from the colon being a little mad at you for making it work so hard. The yellow actually is from bile, and not unusual.

You're also right about the prep - it's akin to being hung from the wrists for 12 hours. Surely a country that can send a man to the moon could find a better way! Good luck with your scope, and I hope your results are good.

That must have been what I threw up too. It was about the same yellow color... YUCK!

Does anyone know: Does the prep erase the good bugs from your colon? Should I double my Culturelle for a week or two to help repopulate?

Just another of the things I was pondering on the potty last night...

It wouldn't hurt to double up your Culturelle. Anything you body doesn't need, it will just get rid of naturally anyway. But I believe that it (the prep) can aggravate the bacteria count a bit.
