Colonoscopy, how long after...

My lunch, I could get used to this.

Agree with @iman29 , anyone over 45 should get one. Colon cancer is easily detected and prevented. My MIL had colon cancer and it was terrible.
 
OK its prep time. I am fasting day today for 8AM appointment tomorrow, have to be there for 7AM. I put this off way too long so I am a little nervous about what they might find, but again I have not had any suspect symptoms since my last one. I would have done this earlier this year but my oldest son was recovering from shoulder surgery during March/April so had to wait.

Doc prescribed me the liquid prep thats one dose this evening at 6PM, and then I have to wake up at 2AM to take the final dose of 16 oz of the liquid mix. I am already dreading the taste and the hours I will spend on the toilet but its a small price to pay in the end (pun intended).

debating to ride or exercise today which will only make me more hungry than I already am. I usually eat small meals throughout the day so I dont want to go into more of a food/calorie deficit than needed and start to feel wonky.
Good luck Ian, I ended up mixing my laxative with a gallon of lemon lime Gatorade. Wasn't terrible but have zero urge to drink it since then

Went today all done.

My prep was Rx and 16oz each dose. only mixing with water. It was pretty awful but I made the water ice cold from the fridge and just chugged it.
 
Things to add, I took 2 stool softeners Monday night for my procedure today.

Get a bidet, your butt will love it.

Update: nothing found in the colon, I'm good for 5 yrs.

Edit: I was told I could excersize tomorrow
