Having a routine colonoscopy next week. Was wondering if anyone with a sleeve has had one? Im concerned about the amounts of Water that have to be drunk with the actual prep. I am going to call Monday to check. Yes, the gastro Dr. Knows Ive had the sleeve. I sw the phys asst. @ my bariatric center and he says not a problem. Im still concerned because 64oz of water in an hour is not doable....

Anybody?

I've had one, but it was several years after surgery so Fluid intake wasn't a problem like it can be in the first few months. Have you talked to the gastro, or whomever is doing the colonoscopy, about the problem to see if they have any alternate preps - things have changed over the years and there are several approaches to the clean out, some needing less fluid than others.

I am calling again on Monday. The gastroenterologist knows Ive had the sleeve and said its fine. But when i read the details of the prep instructions, i raised an eyebrow at the fluid intake amount. As if the whole process isant difficult enough! Thnx for ur reply

I am interested in this as well. I am due to have a routine colonoscopy, and am a bit alarmed about the prep too. I know there are low volume, and split volume preps available, but they still need to be augmented with extra Water. Anyone with a sleeve had this done recently?

I will be doing the prep Wednesday nite, 2 doses, one at 7pm, then another in the early morning depending on time of procedure. I will report back. Also- calling dr in morning to check again if its ok to take longer than the hour to get in 64oz after getting the prep down.
