Help!! Need fast answers
 
Tomorrow Sam is having a colonoscopy, she drank the Mag Cit (8 am) and took a ducolax (noon) and still has not gone to the bathroom, She has to drink the Mag cit at 5  and another dulcolax at 8 tonight. Anyone think its strange she has not gone to the bathroom yet?
 
I don't want to do all this and then tomorrow not be able to do the procedure. Anybody have any experience with this.
 
Last time she drank 2 huge gatorades with Miralax and was sick and threw up a considerable amount so that when they did it last time they had a really hard time seeing everything.

I have no words of wisdom, but it does sound a bit strange that she hasn't gone to the bathroom yet. Have you contacted your DD's GI to see what the suggest?

Good luck today and tomorrow. That would suck if you get there, do the procedure, but they can't see everything. Definately call your GI.

I would say call the GI's office now and see what they want you to do. I also had a problem throwing up the prep. If she is throwing it up make sure she drinks it slow and a little bit at a time so it doesn't come back up.

Contacted the Dr's office and the nurse said to get her drinking more fluids and since her stomach was starting to "bubble" it means it starting to work. Double the Ducolax at 8 and if by 10 nothing contact the Dr on call.

Thanks

I find that if I drink plenty of water during the prep, it moves things along a lot faster. I would for sure call the GI if she hasn't gone soon.

I had the same problem with the mag citrate.. I drank a few bottles, no laxatives though, and didn't go to the bathroom once. I was really worried but sooo tired and I ended up falling asleep. Then, I woke up early in the morning a few hours before my prep freaking out, took a hot shower and that must have loosened things but because I had to jump out mid rinse to go to the bathroom. They did the procedure anyway but they said there was quite a bit of liquid stool in there that they had to rinse away so I'm sure it made things a bit difficult.

Sorry for such a late reply, but I would suggest maybe taking a hot bath or shower!!

Good luck
