Had my scope today. All must be fine because my follow-up appointment to review the results was booked for next year... So that's a plus I guess. Considering how things were when I started with this darn disease. Safe to say that I am in full clinical remission now.
However the prep got to me. I was sooooo hungry. I googled around trying to find out if I could at least have a protein shake or two and came across the above article. Thought many people on here would appreciate it as we're all frequent flyers in the colonoscopy room.
Of note: I did the two tablets of Ducolax and Pico Silax drink prep routine. I stuck to a clear fluid diet with the exception of two vanilla whey isolate powder mixed with water shakes the day before and in between the first and second Pico Silax doses. I also had some organic chicken broth that was not clear, but cloudy. The two made all the difference in the world with hunger/comfort. Colon was super clean for the scope... I drank an extra liter or two of water above what they requested for each prep. So that probably helped as well. Even after the scope I felt much better that any previous time. I actually went to work...
Hope other doctors try this and relax the rules a little.
