Colonoscopy prep - help!

Hi, all.
Here I am prepping for a scope tomorrow. Started drinking the mirilax about 3 hours ago and it's been going well. Until now.

I just vomitted a whole lot. Hay! Isn't the stuff suppose to be coming out the other side? I'm kidding on that front, but seriously, is this something I should be concerned about? Did I just vomit all the prep stuff?
Help me please. Did this ever happen to anyone else?

I've had 3 colonoscopies and I'm afraid that I haven't had any vomiting with any of them. Might not be a bad idea to contact your doctor's office to make sure. I'm prepping for a pill cam tomorrow. So, know your pain. Good luck today and tomorrow

Thanks.
I know. This is my 4th and never had this. Called the office a few minutes ago and they are closed. Hopefully this stuff will kick it shortly and I'll start to feel better.

I just hope I didn't just do all this for nothing.

I know where you're going. I've gotta start taking the wonderful stuff in less than an hour. From that time forward, nothing but water until 10pm pacific time here. Wish I had better help for you. Take care.
