June 26, 2019 / By Norris Question:
I just took 4 8 oz glasses of the liquid prep to clean out my colon it has been an half an hour and nothing. I can't take anymore it hurts so bad and feel like I'm going to throw up drank half of the gallon. How long should it take to have a bowel movement. Feel very bloated is this normal?

Yes it is normal, it will take as long as it takes, different people take different amounts of time. Soon you will know it is time to hang out in the loo. I just got neked and sat on the stool, then jumped in the shower and washed, then sat on the stool again and repeated till done. This is the worst part tomorrow will be a trip a real trip. Good luck with the report!
What your experiencing is very normal. Follow the instructions. It may be several hours before you have a bowel movement.
Give it time. You need time to digest the liquid, which takes a little more than a half hour. But once you start going, you will wish you could stop.
