Hi Karif, My surgery is tomorrow morning. I am now on the liquid pre-op diet. The same as the first meal after your surgery. My doctor gave me a prescription for MOVIPREP Powder Kit. It is a prescription formula that comes as 2 doses. You have to mix package A & B with a whole quart of water and drink 1/4 every 15 minutes. It has 2 applications of this stuff. And I'm suppose to fini**** in 1 hour.(at 12) Then do it again at 4. Not happening!!! I called my friend who is a Nurse and she told me just to make sure that I finish at least 1 quart. Which I did. And my bowels are running like water and clear. She said that is what they are looking for. But I could not eat anything solid today. I think I would rather drink Buttermilk and I have never drank Buttermilk. At first it taste like Alka-Setzer but it has a sweet aftertaste. YUUUCK! YUCK! & more YUCK!! It would have been nice if your doctor gave you better instructions or more help. Funny how not all Bariatric doctors practice the same laws or rules of engagement. But runny and clear is what you are looking for. Also, I have had the magnesium citrate and it works to do the same thing as this stuff. Wish I had that as an option. Sharon
IN IT TO WIN IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
