Unfortunately I am scheduled for a repeat colonoscopy & EGD tomorrow which means I get the pleasure of
attempting to survive completing a bowel prep. This will be my 4th (and unfortunately not my last) time having to endure such torture. So I thought I would share my wisdom that I have acquired over the years with you wonderful readers (after all at one point or another we all end up having the opportunity to share the joy of a colonoscopy).
This is what I call my Bowel Prep Survival Kit:
Moist Wipes: Your butt will thank you. I promise.
Items not pictures but highly recommended: Reading material, a stool to put your feet on (not sure why this helps but it does), and air freshener.
Of course clear chicken or beef broth (without noodles or rice) is on the approved list, but I will stick to lemon Jello and banana pops thankyouverymuch.
Now if you ever get the news that you will have to have a colonoscopy (or must have a bowel prep for some other type of surgery) you can’t say you weren’t prepared 🙂
