Thanks fot that shaz lol I hate the taste of movicol too so sometimes I mix it with juice but still think it has weird oily-like consistency (that's probably why it makes you go lol).
Did you not have any result after 1st picolax at all :shock: ????? How many were you given to take and did the 2nd one make you go completely the other way??? TMI I know sorry :oops:

HI
I have had loads of colonscopys and have tried many lax`s, picolax is one of the better ones to take, i have to have a glass of juice with mine, i will take a mouth full of picolax then a mouth full of juice...lol..sorry fell sick just thinking about it.

My last lot of picolax, the first did not do a thing, i was so worried that they would have to cancel it, lucky the second worked.
I was so blocked that they had to stop the colonscopy..

My specialist felt for me so they said they will try something else so next i had a transit study done, i had to swallow capsuels over 3 days then they do x-rays on day 7, the x-rays showed up the stuff in the capsuels, it should have been out of my system but being me it was still in my bowel. So now i have to take daily lax`s, they keep am eye on me.

Good luck with yours, all but 1 have gone smoothly for me, so iam sure you will be ok. :hugs:

My colonoscopy went fine, and I had Picolax for it, even though I did have a bit of a pizza in the evening before the test - I was just so hungry! I didn't get much of an effect from the first Picolax dose, but the second one soon made itself known!

I was told that "preperation was good", which I figure is colonoscopy-speak for "it's all clear!". Doctor took a few biopsies, and all was fine. Overall, it was an easy operation, I was much more worried about it than I needed to be, I think.

Hope yours goes well!

i always felt as if id been poisioned anything that i ate or drank made my stomache growl rumble like thunder it also felt like broken glass was being pushed through my bowels, passing a hedgehog,
my stools for years looked like Diarrhea with tons of fresh blood in it, toilet terrorism.
i once had a Sigmoidoscopy not the nicest thing to go through took me hours just to get out of hospital kept thinking i was followingthru :mrgreen:
my diet as changed so much since them day's you need lots of oils pour a table spoon of ovile oil over every meal,& take high doses of codliver oil
