Ask for this instead. Much easier to tolerate. Unfortunately I get to do this every 3 years do to Chrohns.

How is the taste of that stuff? I have one every year and hate the typical prep solution. I can handle the taste to an extent but the volume required of that nasty stuff is too much.

hope your phone is charged and your TP is top shelf. I’m going in next Thursday. They shipped me the damn kit weeks ago.

Not good but not horrible. Ice cold water and just chug the 16 oz. After that its just water. Then follow in morning with last 16 oz and more water. Way easier then 1 a day route. They make a pill now as well but never tried.

My preferred method, as i get to do twice a year due to a disease, is buy two bottles of Magnesium Citrate, dulcolax and a styrofoam cup.

Pour a full bottle of MC into styrofoam cup, let sit a few minutes then Chug, takes the bubbles out and goes down way easier. Take two dulcolax then wait an hour take two more and an hour after that drink the second bottle same way as first. Then get wet wipes and prepare to spend a few hours within reach of the throne.

My wife does the pills. She can’t drink that stuff. My Dr says I’m fine and don’t need a prostate exam or C. I’m 54. He’s an idiot. I guess I should push the issue. Wife says I need one. Never had either one yet

At 50 it should be every 5 years for the camera up the pie hole and your prostate should be part of your annual physical.

I’ve had the SurePrep (nasty), the Go-Litely (like salt water with a lemon twist, ugh), but the easiest stuff is magnesium citrate poured into a can of 7up, it’s pretty citrusy, but it’s so much better than the other 2. Oh yeah, skip the TP and go straight to the baby wipes - refrigerated, you’ll thank me later. Good luck. 🚽

Never had a physical. I need a new doctor. Never had the flu or broken bones or been in the hospital. So busy at work that I’ve put it on the back burner 🤦‍♂️
I don’t even know my blood type 🤷🏻

Usually you are semi concious with Versed or other drugs, aka you dont remember what happened after. No one can be fullly concious with that procedure that I am aware of!

They give you the option of semi conscious or knocked the fuck out.
I choose knocked out every time.
They say “here goes” and 3 seconds later it’s nighty night.
I wake up in the recovery room all done and never even know it.

My wants to see my ass in his office every 5 years after the 1st one. 🤦‍♂️
Yeah my first one was a 5 year plan because of 2 precancerous polyps.

I actually waited 6 years cuz I was a little busy.
But the last one doc said it was borderline on whether to go 10 years because even though they cut out 2 more polyps, he said they weren’t anything to be alarmed about.
Oh well, I figure I’ll split the difference and go 7 years or so.

You people, who have NOT had this Life Saving procedure. Do Not let anyone B.S. you. Drinking the Prep is not the best, but in the Big Picture of life:rolleyes: I know a Nurse who has dozens of storiesabout Patients who could have saved so much Grief and their Life, by just doing the Check-Up to determine "IF" you have the most Curable Cancer there is with Early Detection.

There are many worse things in life, suck it up and after 40 I would be getting a Plan.

Maybe - Maybe not. Like Clink asked, Do You Feel Lucky? These "FIT" Tests give you an Idea Of Micro Blood in your Stool, NOT if the Polyups are near Critical. Skip A Rope!!

Im 46 and I cant get my Primary Doc or my insurance to authorize this test for me. So I guess out of pocket is my only option, but again, do I go out of network, private facility? They dont want to offer it to us under 50 guys! Dr. looked at my like I was crazy when I asked.
