I have my colonoscopy this Saturday and I'm stressed about how it will go, does anyone have any experience with how it went for them and what to be aware of etc?

      I took Miralax in Pedialyte for my prep for my colonoscopy. The Pediatrician will keep you hydrated as the prep works through your colon. Diarrhea causes you to lose water and makes you dehydrated. Pedialyte has electrolytes to keep you hydrated. It's also great when you are sick with the stomach bug.

      Dropped in to leave some advice but I see I’m terribly late! How’d things go for you? Well as can be, I’m hoping

      It's relatively easy. The prep is the hardest part. Just try to stay hydrated and near a toilet until after the procedure. Good luck!
