Colonoscopy in 2 hours

So I'm fairly certain my colonoscopy is going to fail. Took my ducolax the way i was directed and the first day it barely did anything and hasn't done anything since I took it again last night. Colonoscopy is in two hours and there's juts now way to be cleaned out in time. What a waste of my weekend. 👎

So sorry to hear, I know the feeling. I had a failed one in October because the Mg Citrate made me throw up my Miralax prep. I thought I might have been cleaned out enough and went through the whole procedure to wake up and them to tell me that they hadn't been able to go very far and that I needed to rebook and try again. In December I rescheduled and just did Miralax and Dulcolax with a 2 day liquid diet. That did the trick.

Ugh, so sorry. I hope you find the right prep that works for you. For me, I took 2 ducolax twice, and Miralax with 2-day liquid diet and low residue for the week prior. This one worked for me. I did have to find the right drink to dilute the Miralax in so that I could stomach it. I've had success with Snapple diet tea and orange Gatorade. I drink it with a straw-it takes a while but I do get it down.
