I just wrote a big long paragraph and got an error message...……………..yikes.  The point was what am I to expect as far as output after taking in the bowel prep fluids.  I have visions of kneeling  in front of the toilet with the open end in the toilet and just sleeping there, while I expel every solid and fluid in my body for 8 hours.

Sorry about the error message.  If it continues to happen, please post it in the Bug Reports section.

I detailed my output schedule during my first ileoscopy which required a bowel prep. You can see the timeline here:  https://www.veganostomy.ca/first-ileoscopy/

Keep in mind that my experience will likely be different from yours since there are so many variables at play. 

Honestly, though. It wasn't too terrible - more inconvenient than anything. 

Good luck!

OK.   I see from your experience that your bag only got to about 1/2 full before you emptied it.  That was my major concern...…………..the bag filling up and overflowing all over me...………..   That is a bit of a relief.  I read it over real fast, so intend to read it again.  I had gotten my bowl prep via the pharmacy.  It is supposed to be more powerful than the over the counter supplies that I used in the past.  One thing I must agree with you on.   I once tried to do a colonoscopy without anesthesia and I will not do that again...………….YES it is very uncomfortable. So, once again,thanks for all your information.  It is very helpful.  I am so glad I found this website.  Your a glass of water in a desert, so to speak.
