Oh Dennie-- I'm so sorry for you! I always feel bad when I have to give patients Golytely. What flavor is yours? Our hospital only has cherry flavor, but I'm told it also comes in lemon and pineapple.
When my husband had a colonoscopy last year, I just knew he'd never be able to do the Golytely (he hates cherry flavor) so I sent him to the doc with a note asking for the Fleets #3 prep. He was up all night with the Fleets #3 (Clear liquids, 8 oz. q1h starting at noon, Mag citrate at 7 p.m., Dulcolax tabs, 4, at 9 p.m., and then dulcolax enema in a.m. of procedure) and so I'm not sure if the Golytely might have quicker results??? I've given enough bowel preps on 3-11, but I'm never there on night shift to see if the patients are up all night pooping.
This one poor older male patient I had couldn't keep the Golytely down or drink enough of it, so the doctor ordered an NG tube to be inserted and I had to pour cupfuls down the NGT of that nasty stuff every 20 minutes or so.
Please let us know how it "goes"
, and my sympathies for you!
