Ahh, the joys of cleansing

I can handle the not eating, the frequent urination, and even look forward to the IV sedation while watching the endoscope, but dear Lord, the prep solution. Surely someone, somewhere can made that shit palatable! 😖

As I recall (it's been a few years), I found it tolerable. It helps to chill it to just above freezing. --Bob

The stuff I had the most recent time tasted exactly like classic Gatorade. No problem.

Oh it’s cold. Prep lady suggested having a drop of honey before and after each glass. Kills two birds with one sweet stone. Manages gagging, and inputs calories lol

I am beyond words for this although the ones I can think of have lots of "F's" in them.

This is horrible!
