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 😂

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
