Bowel Prep - Gastric Bypass tomorrow!



Recommended Posts

I am currently drinking this bowel prep. I was prescribed the Peg 3350, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Bicarb & Potassium Chloride solution. It is 4 Liters, but the directions say most only need 3 Liters before the BMs are clear Water without solids. Anyone had experience with this? I am at 1.5 liters and am having a hard time getting anything else in >.<

Congrats on surgery tomorrow.

Yep, I had a colonoscopy after sleeve surgery. It was no fun getting the colon prep in. I took small sips, stayed near the bathroom and got it all in by the end of the night.

Thank you so much!

This stuff is awful! It says drink 8oz every 10 minutes. Im more like a glass every 20...Having the hardest time with it. I am sure this is the least of my worries but it is still tough!

I didn’t have to do a bowel prep for my gastric bypass surgery because I think the 2 week pre op diet probably took care of everything but I have done a few before colonoscopies... not fun. Good luck with your surgery.

I don’t have to do any bowel prep before my op, there were just the normal fasting before anaesthesia requirements. IMO making you do that is cruel and unnecessary punishment. Bowel prep is awful and usually only necessary for colonoscopies etc. I know when I had mine it felt like someone had poured acid on my ring, wiping was the worst pain ever.

I got 2.5 liters in. It says to stop when clear and no solids. No solids but not clear... I can’t imagine that it will ever be “clear”

I just chugged it really fast to get it over with. I felt nauseated and had serious heat and chill flashes (which they said was normal) but felt fine after everything passed. But the taste was awful so I figured the quicker I drink the less I’ll have to taste it 😂
