I’ve had colonoscopies about every three years (due to polyps and family history.) They’ve had me use Suprep in the past, and I did okay with that, but last year, I got intensively ill overnight from it. Major nausea, although no vomiting, sweats, chills, etc. So this year I asked for the Miralax protocol.
Here’s the problem/question: I’m still on a 145% basal rate due to two cortisone shots I had about 8 days ago. Not only do I have to take Miralax but I’ve also got to take Ducolax, about which I’ve heard pretty bad things (VERY severe cramping, nausea, etc.)
I start prep Sunday, and am concerned about what to do with my basal rates; how to handle it if I get so nauseous that I can’t even get jello down. Anyone been through this prep before (2 ducolax night before plus 1/2 the Miralax) and then the other 1/2 Miralax and 2 more Ducolax tablets. Has anyone been through this prep before? Anyone have any great ideas? I’m usually not a wimp about procedures, but I’m truly dreading this one, especially since I’m not yet back to my normal basal rate…
