can you eat applesauce before you get a colonoscopy

Yes: Ingest semisolids up to 12 hrs before colonoscopy. Then use GoLytly and take a Fleets emema the night before surgery. Problems are encountered when one consumes salads 24hrs before which are not digested well and then wind up in the colon plugging the colonoscope.

Clear liquids: are better unless you want to do a second prep.
