The prep is one of the most unpleasant things in life, I think. Worse than UC, even. But it's really important. I was reading an article about
missed diagnosis of colon cancer the other day; it said one big factor was inadequate prep for the colonoscopy. Most of the missed cases were in the ascending (right) colon, where an incomplete prep can obscure a lot of things.
So I guess we just have to grit our teeth and white-knuckle through it. I'm due for mine in August, and I already know my new GI is going to make sure I don't procrastinate. She mentions it every time I see her. :-(
