I am scheduled for my colonoscopy the end of the month. I alreadysent away for, and received my Pico-Salax(generic kind) from Canada.
Now he has already givine me a prescription for the gallon prep yuk.
The last time I tried to take this I threw up more than I took in. No matter what I did. Sucked candy, drank strong tasting fluids, the minute I put the glass to my mouth, I stated to gag. The thought of it now can make me shiver. He is unsympathetic to this, and just says "do the best you can".
If I start and find I just can't get it down, of course I will have to postpone the colonoscopy.
If I tell him about what I ordered he will not grant permission to take it.(really can't blame him as since it isn't available in US he probably would be going out on a limb to tell me to take something he isn't familiar with)
So, would you just take the Pico and not say anything?
I am just sitting here thinking what if it doesn't work, or something? You see what I am saying?
So, has anyone ever done this on their own?
