Based on the info you provided, I would code it as complete. The Dr. may have noted that the prep was poor only to aknowledge that it did cause some obstruction to the viewing, however, there must not have been too much remaining fecal material if he made it all the way to the Cecum. It did not stop the doctor from completing the exam.
Does that make sense? I guess that is how I would justify it for myself.
