    Hello, I had Picolax too and was ok with it, but found the prep to be the worst part, I was worried like you, but it was fine and I had no real pain, with sedation I was relaxed and watched it all on the screen, I only felt very slight discomfort except it was more in my stomach  area, but the staff were so lovelly and I worried for nothing, Good luck, try  to stay calm and it will be easier .

    Hi, I had taken klean prep .... the prep wasn't the best and the drinking in an hour does seem much but I somehow managed. I had to take a sachet st 10am, one at 11, one at 6pmand one at 7pm. The evening ones where worse but to be honest I expected it to be much much worse. Good lick

      HI Ella I just wanted to say I got through the Klean prep day it was hard drinking all that water but your right it  wasn't half as bad as I thought it was going to be I was dreading it.

      I didn't have much discomfort just lots of wind not sure if that's the stuff or the flat fizzy I sipped, thank you again Jakki x

      Hi Ella home after my colonoscopy today all went well I can honestly say I worried for nothing a little discomfort several biopsies and have mild  diviticulitus but nothing to get stressed about the worst part was the cannula in the back of the hand it obviously didn't go In right so got a swelling and bruising that is more uncomfortable than the whole prep and colonoscopy he did comment I had a nice clean clean bowel I did tell him that stuff was vile ha but I am home eaten which is the best part and apart from my hand I am fine thank you for your replies Jakki x
