Just returned from a catscan about an hour ago...I drank that stuff and without flavoring because I cannot tolerate artificial sweetners and the flavored stuff is loaded with it which if intolerant can cause major gastric disturbances.

Hope you get good news next week : )

Same here. Mine was a pink liquid that the nurse compared to Crystal Light. Tasted pleasant to me; it was just difficult to drink so much liquid at one time. I was sloshing around. And no adverse effects afterward.
Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis spring 1999.
