Hi all, I was very recently diagnosed as having a rectal polyp, and even more recently have received the promised Colonoscopy appointment together with a pack of "Moviprep". I've read the enclosed instructions several times, but still find myself at a loss as to what the optimum preparation timing will be for a 8AM procedure.
The directions for the prep are quite detailed, however, in regards to the timing they only advise "If splitting the dose, see instructions provided by your doctor for completing your bowel prep". Unfortunately, I haven't been given any specific details relative to preparing for an early morning procedure. A call to the local hospital today has left me advised to take both packs the day prior to the appointment. Pack A at 5PM, followed by pack B five hours later at 9PM.
This being my first Colonoscopy, I naturally decided to do a little online research and found the information regarding the timing of taking the "Moviprep" mostly contradictory to the hospitals advice. In general, the online consensus advises patients to start taking the second dose of the preparation approximately 4 to 5 hours before the scheduled time of their colonoscopy, as opposed to the 10 to 11 hours advised by the hospital.
My online research has also led me to this wonderful forum and left me wondering if any members have any experience or advice specific to "moviprep" and an early morning cystoscopy... I'm not sure if it's relevant, but I'm a 53 year old guy and one who will be eternally grateful for any helpful advice.
