Can I Have Orange Jello Before A Colonoscopy
Generally no: Typically you need to adhere to a clear liquid diet the day before your colonoscopy and you need to complete an oral bowel preparation. A clear liquid diet is any liquid you can see through when poured into a cup (juice, broth, clear sodas, popsicles, jello, etc). If you don't adhere to these things, the quality of your colonoscopy will be poor. Contact your GI doctor for details. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am having a colonscopy examination tomorrow, but I have had some cheese and a flat white coffee this morning. Should the procedure be cancled?
Can I have Werther's Original Caramel Hard Candies the day before my colonoscopy? I am on a clear liquid diet.
Yes: The hard candies will dissolve into soft or liquid form before they reach your bowel. While they are not quite clear, they are close enough. And the volume they would produce would be very small. I probably would not do more than 5 or 6 of them, though; maybe 10 at the most. None on day of procedure. Clearer/lighter hard candy would be better. Keep up the water!! Good luck! ...Read more
I have a colonoscopy scheduled tomorrow afternoon. can I eat chocolate jello or chocolate pudding today (the day before procedure)?
I have eated red jello the day before I am sheduled to go for a colonoscopy. Should I cancel my colonoscopy and reshedule for another time?
Don't Cancel: There is no need to cancel the colonoscopy. Just continue the prep and stay on clear liquids the rest of the day. Make sure you just let your gastroenterologist know that you ate red jello so they don't think it is blood if they actually see it. But in reality, that red jello should be long gone by the time you complete your prep. ...Read more

I am on miralax (polyethylene glycol) & dolcolax. I usually eat wheat and whole grains but i had some animal crackers that might have been white. I am scared i will get constipated. Is it possible or will i be fine?.
You should be fine: Daily recommended dose of fiber is 25-30 gms and you can't get it by just eating foods. Add a fiber supplement to your diet such as metamucil or konsyl and take it on a regular basis. Small amount of animal crackers should not affect your bowel habbits. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
