The patient was to undergo an elective colonoscopy for investigation of abdominal pain, for which an ultrasound scan of the abdomen had not provided a diagnosis. She had taken picolax as bowel preparation with two litres of water as prescribed and had then developed profuse vomiting, followed by diarrhoea which lasted for two hours. She became confused and her husband concerned, brought her to Accident and Emergency (A&E).
