    I had a colonoscopy this last fall, I hated the prep, and all of that laxative. The liquid diet wasn't that great either. They found two polyps, I woke up during the procedure was very uncomfortable. So, I tried to concentrate on the t.v., and watched him lasso a polyp, and removed it with one quick motion. My colon was pink and very, very clean, but after what I had been through it should have been..............

    I'm happy all turned out well. I do my water drinking at night, but I don't have any problems with constipation or anything like that.

    At least you had the courage to go through with something like that. I don't because of the prep and I have diabetes and take insulin. Don't think I could make it on a liquid diet for 3 days as I have lactose intolerance.

    Glad all turned out ok. Did you have constipation? I have that problem due to meds - I just do the best I can. I had the full colonscopy last year - actually the prep is not that bad.

    They now have a pill you can take, so Faye who posted, please ask your doctor about the "pill" to do a prep.

    Colon cancer is so preventable if you catch polyps early, they just remove them.

    i am 41 years. and i have both constipaton and diareahha...
    when i take cetain meds constipate me...i my i thinkitis my sphinter muscle it is not like it should be...muscle needs to be a lot tighter...and back problems can cause that...my prmary wants to rule out the other things now i need to do a follow up w/the back for the thoracic area mri...

    so i have been losing control of my stool at times...embarassing....

    and for the one that said they are diabetic...you only really need to do a 2 enema prep, one every hour, starting 2 hours before the appt..and no food or water until after the appt..that last about 1o minutes for the acutual procedure....
    you could keep something in your purse for afterwards...

    but i was cramping quite badly because they force air in your rectum, and squirt some h20 up there to make the scope slide easier....

    thank you for everyones response to this.. i just wanted to let everyone no i am ok...next step mri for the thoaracici area...
