I need a bowel prep and am going to take Osmo Prep. Will taking 20 tablets the day before be enough. The surgery is first thing in A.M. will I need to take the 12 more tablets in the a.m. or will the 20 be enough?
Have you had your surgery yet? I know there are doctors that want you to take all those pills to flush your system out, there are ones who have this gallon jug of stuff to drink, my doctor has this little 8 oz bottle of stuff(you take 4 ounces, 2 different times), you are to dilute it for it to be effective, they say, once you dilute it, it is easier to get down, well, guess what, that is not true, so what I do, I have a big glass of water ready, then I pour half the bottle into another glass, I take 2 big gulps, then immediately drink the water, this way, I get the nasty stuff down quickly, followed by all the water, which dilutes it in my tummy so it can do its things, lol. I have done this the last 2 times and it worked just fine, no complaints from the doctor.
I hope this helps out, if not for this time, maybe the next time you have to do this, you can request this 8 ounce bottle of stuff and try it the way I did it, and it will be a lot better!
