My surgery is monday and I am suppose to clean myself out by only having fluids today and tomorrow then use magnesium citrate before i go to bed tomorrow. Only problem is I have to work till 7 pm tommorow and surgery is at 830 am the next day. How long does this stuff take to work? Can I take it at work around 5pm and hope I make it home before it kicks in or should I just wait till I get home?
Uh, I would wait till I got home to do the mag citrate stuff. It worked pretty rapidly on me; maybe 30 minutes or so. Don't know if it makes a difference but I was on an all liquid diet for 2 weeks prior to the prep stage. Good luck on your surgery!
Do NOT take it at 5:00 while you're at work for another 2 hours!!!!! It took between 30-45 minutes to work on me and I was in the bathroom multiple times before I went to bed that night. The next morning I went before going to the hospital and again before my surgery! I suggest you get some baby wipes to clean yourself because regular TP might leave you a bit sore.
