Thanks so much for the care you provided! I had my hernia repaired and was back working in 2 days! I know, no heavy lifting for a bit. Laparoscopic surgery is the best technology. My friend had his hernia fixed the old way. He’s still in pain over a month later. It’s too bad he doesn’t live in Wyoming so he could have seen Dr. Barton. Thanks again!

Are there other types of prep for colonoscopy? The liquid prep is a lot to drink.

There are multiple bowel preps available. Some work better than others. There are many people who have a hard time drinking all of the liquid bowel prep. There are several newer formulations that do not require you to drink a whole gallon of liquid. Unfortunately, these preps cost more. Of most importance is the cleanliness of your colon for the procedure. Ultimately, the type of prep doesn’t matter if your colon is clean for the colonoscopy. Typically, we ask people if they have a sensitive stomach, or trouble with nausea when we discuss bowel preps. If they have trouble with these things, they are given other prep options.

Great question! Thanks
