Tips for the prep? Don't make any plans other than to stay near the toilet. Make it as comfortable as possible. Set up a tablet or laptop or a good book to make the time go faster. My prep involved a LOT of clear fluids and I splurged and bought my favorite white grape juice just to be nice to me
Try to rest a lot
Are you getting the olonoscopy because they suspect you have UC?
One more important thing...I used a zinc ( or baby diaper rash) cream to protect my skin. Going to the bathroom with the stuff I used can get quite irritating on the skin. Don't know if all preps are like that.
diagnosed (colonoscopy/biopsy) Feb 2012; U/C throughout entire colon but only partly inflamed?
