Yay for the reversal! Been there and done that all myself. And you are
quite right about the prep, ugh. Nasty indeed. I informed my GI doctor, who
is a delightful gentleman otherwise, that if he even suggested another

He doesn't think such will be necessary, however, which is a good thing.
You will feel much better later, I'm quite sure.
