prepping for colonoscopy and small bowel follow through
i am scheduled for a colonoscopy in several weeks.  I have had one once before and prepped using Visicol pills, which worked quite well.  I am extremely nervous this time as the doc won't allow the pills and I have a very active gag reflex.  I'm a terrified (and that is not too strong a word) that I will not be able to get and keep the Miralax down.  Is the Visicol (or not) just a doctore preference?
The doc for the colonoscopy wants me to do the Miralax/gatorade/dulcolax thing.  Even more upsetting is the small bowel follow through doc wants me to do the magnesium citrate thing.
Had to do cod liver oil as an 18year old and then drank the barium...couldn't keep it down and the radiologist walked out, blaming me for trying to throw up!  Charming guy.
