HI Mick, i know the prep sucks big time. but, it's worth it, especially if your colonoscopy comes normal. At least you can ease your mind either way. best wishes.

In your case, I guess you don't want normal results from your scope. But either way, the prep is the hard part. ICKY! SICKY!

Good luck with the prep and the results!

Hi Mick, I wish you good luck! Is this your first colonoscopy? The prep is definitely the worst part - be prepared to spend LOTS of time (yes, even more than usual!) in the bathroom during prep. Make sure you have some entertainment to keep you occupied, a book or laptop computer or anything like that to keep yourself distracted while in the bathroom. I personally like to do sudoku puzzles and watch movies when I prep. Good luck with it, and I hope the scope gets you some answers!
