Yes: Initially, you will have brown stool-colored results after colonoscopy prep. Eventually the goal is clear return or clear-ish with occasional flecks of brown liquid stool.

Yes: When cleansing for colonoscopy it's ok to drink anything clear- broth, juice, sport drinks. Just stay away from anything fatty, or red color.
