Hello again,

Yes you should feel some relief of hunger when you are taking oral prep but expect it to be incomplete "relief"

Ok, yea I figured with having to constantly go to the bathroom it will take my mind off the hunger. Are there any drink that may provide substitution they gave me a list off drinks I can have. The one thing I got from it was nothing red because it can look like blood. I saw lemonaide, apple juice and gator aide was recommended to prevent dehydration. I think I saw broth was ok too.

Health Professional: Anthony Bray, MD, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Hello again,

Yes a broth should BE fine -- I agree ...you are right nothing with red dye ...I would avoid other intense dyes as well(blue or orange for examples )...more clears or light colored fluids ....

Customer reply replied 1 year ago

Well the gator aide I have is orange.It only really comes in those flavors. Does broth help with hunger?

Health Professional: Anthony Bray, MD, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Hello again,

Yes broth would help with your hunger ....

Yes it has made a diff, I feel better. Can I take it while I am taking the solution if I get hungry later. I am leaving work at 3:30 going to take a pill they gave me at 3:45 and then when I get home around 4 min my solution and then around 5 start drinking the 8 oz every 20 min.

Health Professional: Anthony Bray, MD, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Yes you could have some both this evening but you are going to be very busy with the prep it sounds ....I doubt that you will crave much while taking the prep solution ....

Customer reply replied 1 year ago

OK because I just drank my 5th 8 oz nothing yet. Its like I can feel an urge in my anus but not enough to make me go yet.

Health Professional: Anthony Bray, MD, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Be patient ...many hours until tomorrow ...I'm sure that you will be getting results from prep within next couple of hours now ....

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago

OK I did go once, but im a few cups away from finishing the 64 ounces. After I went the urge went away I guess it will come back soon.

Health Professional: Anthony Bray, MD, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Hello again,

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Well I did and now I go in little spurts think I've gone like 6 times now. I feel nauseous though I'm cursing that's from all the mix from the laxative. Now I only have one more step left I have to wake up at 1 am and take a bottle of magnesium. Hopefully I'll only go like one from that.
Health Professional: Anthony Bray, MD, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Yes the prep is a pain...that seems to be common complaint ...

As I've said just hang in there ....bad night but soon will be over ...

Health Professional: Anthony Bray, MD, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Hello again,

The prep cleans out the bowel...

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
