I am passing only water after the first dose, do I need to take the 2nd?
I'm wanting to know the same answer !
What if you cant stomach the second one ?
& passing clear !
I was passing clear yellow liquid before I finished second dose. I threw the rest (about 1/4 cup) out and finished drinking the required 16 oz of water. Everything was fine. The nurse asked me if the liquid I passed was clear. This is what she wanted to hear.
Yes, you do still have to take the second dose. There could be food (jello, clear broth, juice, from your liquid fast day still has to come out as waste product) that was moving through your system and was not in your colon yet for the first round. When you do the second dose you will have more brown sludge (sorry) coming out for around 4 rounds of diarrhea, even though you were running clear the night before. I also wanted to skip the second dose since I was running clear after first dose but I went ahead and did 2nd dose in the early AM and I was so glad I did. I was really surprised to find so much waste still in me to come out. Finally ran clear again on about the 5th round of diarrhea. My doctor complimented me on what a great job I did and she found a very tiny polyp that she said she would have missed if I had not done such a thorough prep. Good luck!
I thought one bottle was good enough, too. My doctor didn't so now I have to go back and have another colonoscopy in three months ! If I had done what I was supposed to it would have been ten years ! Save yourself the trouble and make yourself drink the other bottle !
