One more question.

I have a scope scheduled at 1:00 pm, so my prep instructions say to do half the prep the night before and half in the morning.

Having done this once before, I want to get it all over with the night before and just be hungry the next day.

My question is, will it make any difference if I do all the prep the night before if I don't eat/drink anything after the prep? I find it hard to believe anything could possible be left inside a human after injesting the prep stuff if you don't eat/drink anything.

Also, does the EDG scope leave you with a sore throat?

Are you drinking the gallon GoLytely stuff? That's what I had and I did half the night before and half in the morning. I was really happy to split it up like that b/c I don't think I could have drank it all at once.

I don't think it would matter if you did what you want to do, but maybe you could check with your pharmacist or doctor to be sure.

Never had an EDG.
