I am going for a colonoscopy today at 2pm. The doctor prescribed

Resolved Question:

I am going for a colonoscopy today at 2pm. The doctor prescribed me moviprep to take 1 litre of last night and 1 litre this morning. I managed to drink all last night with a struggle however my second course this morning proved rather difficult as I was only able to keep down half of the 1 litre.

My bowls movements are watery. Also I took 2 senekot on Sunday night .

Have I done enough to clear out my bowel even though I wasn't able to finish moviprep completely. Have been fasting for 24 hrs

How many times did you pass watery stool? Is there any stool particle in it?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
About 6 times so far. Mostly watery with very small stool partials this morning. Size of a peanut to be exact. Have only gone once this morning so I would expect a few more times should be one the cards

Thank you for the input.

If you can not finish the prep then also you can have colonoscopy. You need to observe the stool. It should be watery. Presence of fecal matter can prevent good observation of the colonic mucosa. If the subsequent motions are watery only then it would be better.

If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
