my colonoscopy and upper GI


Well-Known Member
I had my second colonoscopy last year and the sure prep was better than the golightly but the magnesium citrate was hard to drink and the aftertaste made me shudder and shudder. I still shudder when I think about it because I tried to drink some during a recent hospital stay.

It worked though but after the colonoscopy my guts felt sore, gassy, crampy and kind of hurt for a few days. Like they got wild with the hose in there and waved it around! The first time I had no sensations like that and they had even removed a polyp.
