Friday I had a colonoscopy. Thursday I had to prep starting at 5:00 p.m. I had to take two dulcolax at 5:00 plus drink a 10 ounce bottle of magnesium citrate saline laxative which is lemon flavor. I had to take two more dulcolax at 6:00 and then drink another bottle of the magnesium citrate at 8:00.
I suffer from acid reflux, it has been under control until the other day and ever since drinking it my entire esophagus stings and so do my entire insides. The colonoscopy made me very sore. Not to mention I had already had issues with being sore from too many bathroom trips and then the added trips from the laxative not only has me sorer but I feel totally raw all over. Any suggestions as to what I can do to coat my upper gi tract and stomach? Can't do much for the colon I realize. Thanks.
