I, like others, go a week or longer without a BM and when I do have one the stool is very hard and I strain excessively. Miralax does help me but it makes my body feel extremely cold. When I had my last colonoscopy, after drinking the gallon prep, I was so cold I was shaking uncontrollably and ended up in the ER. I am gluten free, fructose free, and dairy free--anyone else with these issues? Also, curious whether there is any type of sugar in Miralax.
Absolutely yes! This is the third time I have had a colonoscopy and the second time that I have reacted badly. Freezing cold--wearing a sweat suit, bathrobe, blanket and sitting in font of the fireplace shaking. (It's May 15!). I was wondering if I should have gone to the hospital. Finally, I vomited what could only be described as a jellyfish. I have no diet restrictions and am in good health.
I am in process of colonoscopy prep, scheduled tomorrow at 7:30. I actually googled "is it normal to be cold... "
I am so cold. I drank the last day-before glass hours ago. I see it must be normal for some of us. I am diabetic type 2. I feel fine other than the stomach upset and cold.
