Well, I came here asking for information and got some of that and a lot o attitude. Of course this is a choice, to have the colonoscopy. And I'd like the prep to be kinder to my system. Why that incurs such wrath is beyond me.

Oh, and the full Fleet prep included Phospho-Soda which was the culprit, causing pooling of calcium in the kidneys. Victims have incurred damage from mild CKD to severe CKD requiring dialysis and even transplants. The product was not removed because of competitive options although gullible people will believe this company version. It was removed from the market because a significant number of people got kidney disease as a result of using it. For Fleet to leave it on the market when it was known that people were having permanent damage to kidneys would have opened them up to even worse suits. Individual lawsuits and class actions are wending their ways through the justice system now. Chronic kidney disease is a high price to pay for something ordered by doctors.

So I question the reasonableness of assuming and trusting anything about the preparation process and continue to wish for a more natural approach.
