Will drinking gatorade help with leg pain and lower back pain after a colonoscopy ? being that the prep depletes fluids in your body.

Maybe unrelated : Back and leg pain are not something typically related to the procedure, by if you're dehydrated from the prep, Gatorade can help rehydrate you, and possibly help alleviate our symptoms.bthey may however be unrelated. Its easy enough to try! Hope this helps.
