  • You can do it! I will seem impossible towards the end after awhile just stay in the bathroom. I even took my small TV in the bathroom when I had it done years ago.

  • I feel for you. I had to do the 3 hour glucose drink today. Not as bad as yours, but still nasty none the less.

  • Good luck!!!! I have to get one every five years and after the gallon stuff, I was so glad to use the fleets phosphosoda. Just think, you will be so drugged up tomorrow you won't care what is going on!

  • I just did it last week.I had the lemon-lime flavor,used a straw placed as far back as I could stand it then chased it with ginger ale.My Dr. said that this prep was the safest.Yucky but safe.
