did not have open surgery, mine was laparoscopic when I had my colonoscopy, my doctor was great, he did not require the liquid prep, just a timed regiment of laxatives', followed by an early morning enema. the only issue I ran into was, me before surgery, and after. the colonoscopy I had a few years before this surgery, when was a 215lb very athletic male, the prep was a breeze. after surgery, I weighed about 185 at the time, and did not pay attention to how much fluid I lost from the prep, and passed out due to dehydration. since the operation I have always been carful to monitor, hydration and food intake. so be carful, like me you have a different plumbing, so when all is clear, you know what I am talking about. stop the prep, and stick with clear liquids. and always communicate with your doctor. good luck.
