What if you cant stomach the second bottle
Yes, you have to do the second bottle (sorry). I thought I was good enough after first bottle because it was running through me as clear liquid. I woke up early and went ahead with the 2nd dose as instructed mainly because I was afraid of not following directions and getting a sent home for not having sufficient prep. I definitely didn't want to risk having to go through this again. So I did the second dose in the early AM and I had more brown waste coming out (even though I was running clear the night before). I think more food must have made its way through my system that wasn't yet in my colon the night before. Anyway, it took around 4 rounds of diarrhea from the morning dose to run clear again. The lesson is -- yes, you definitely have to do the second bottle to get fully cleaned out. If you don't do it, your doctor can miss polyps and the whole point of doing the colonoscopy is to find any polyps and remove them so they don't turn cancerous. Good luck!
