      No but I will-I didn'tvgo for three days after and then diarrhea-last night I woke up four times to go...I think the prep is very irritating to our colon and it is probably inflamed so perhaps try some Imodium to see if that helps-maybe I will do that as well

    I had this after my colonoscopy and it turned out it was not the prep but the exam itself - having the camera up there inflamed the bowel and my body went into shock. Take some immodium and eat small plain foods - just toast, eggs, crackers etc for a few days
