    I had the same worries and everything was fine.

    Susan, I was really afraid to have it done because I have severe IC. I thought this was going to be a major issue, no problems whatsoever.

    Hugs, Trishann

    Thanks for the reassuranace. My gastro guy said he did not think the chemicals would bother the IC but I've gotten so I don't trust everyone. I scheduled it in June bec. I'm having two grandbabies this spring.

    Susan...when you're getting your favorite mag or book to put in the bathroom for your prep, get something like cottonelle wipes or preparation h wipes, too. Or, someone on another board suggested washcloths soaked in witch hazel and then frozen. Any of these will be of great comfort to you and your sore bum.

    I'm assuming you mean the laxative you have to drink to prepare for the test. It didn't bother my bladder at all. I do suggest that you place a comfortable chair very close to your bathroom and take a good book with you. You'll be there a lot for several hours.

    Good luck!

    I need to have a colonsocopy bec. we need to confirm the irritiable bowel diagnosis plus I am 53 years. old. I'm really concerned about all those chemicals going in my bladder. I don't think I need all of that stuff be. it doesn't take much to set the IBS off any way. Any suggestions? Thanks.
