Pouchoscopy Prep Question - Can do without laxative?

Hello all,

Despite having a bit of a rocky start, I have thankfully been doing fairly well and without functional problems! I am coming up on my first pouchoscopy, and I was wondering if it were possible to prep for the procedure without the bowel prep?

I still tend to get dehydrated really quickly, and it would be so much more comfortable for me if I could perhaps just drink liquids 24 hours before the procedure versus using actual prep. I also have a long commute to my doctor, and so it would be really helpful if I could avoid the bathroom continuously.

I'd really appreciate any tips! I do have to get a good reading on this, since I may have some minor problems that we need to look out for (potential tears/bleeding).
