Well, I can understand your concern.

PicoPrep is used to remove the bowel contents and cleanse it prior to colonoscopy.

I would make clear, that if you are passing out adquate urine, than you should not be urine.

You can safely take PicoPrep. This would not cause any problem.

PicoPrep is not recommended for those patients, who have undergone dialysis.

In your case, this should be safe.

I would suggest, that you can go ahead with Picoprep.

Hope this helped

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.

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.
