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!
It is 20 hours before my colonoscopy and I still have two rounds of laxative prep to do. Will it hurt me to have a bowl of ice cream or a candy bar?
Follow your MD's: Instructions, may not hurt bit if bowel is not prepped well procedure will be cancelled and you have to repeat. Best thing speak to your doctor.
Follow the instructi: Your doctor's office should give you instructions to follow in order to have a good prep. Otherwise your test will be cancelled as the preparation is rigorous and lasts 2-3 days of no solids and using laxatives to clean up your intestines completely.
Usually its clear: Liquids the day before colonoscopy. Jello is fine but not oranges. Some people recommend avoiding red color jello so as not to creat any confusion during colonoscopy.
Yes: Should not be a problem.Get a more detailed answer ›
No: It is probably too late by now!
Yes and no.: Avoid red and purple, but orange doesn't usually cause much problem. Be sure to consume a lot of liquids, too. Check with your doctor's office, they might have unique restrictions/limitations. The red jello can get confused with fresh blood!
Light meal: If it was normal procedure without complications, light meal to start, some soup, not too heavy, not too spicy. Plenty of water. Then advance as tolerated.
NPO: That means nothing by mouth. Or perhaps fluids only. That is a pretty stupid question.See 1 more doctor answer
I have a colonoscopy scheduled tomorrow afternoon. Can I eat chocolate jello or chocolate pudding today (the day before procedure)?
Colonoscopy scheduled next week. I already go 4 or 5 times a day and barely eat. Should I take the entire prep? I'm afraid of dehydration.
Is it normal to have the urge to push really hard when having diarrhea? That seems to be my problem, colonoscopy done last yr was good! Doineedanother
Nothing to gassy: Since most people are a little bloated after a colonoscopy, I tend to recommend foods that are not too gassy right after a colonoscopy. Otherwise, eat whatever you want. You just went through a tough ordeal so you deserve a treat!
Yes, if...: If a person enjoyed tofu without problems in the past, then she can have tofu the day before her colonoscopy... As long as she drinks the prep drink and clears everything out of her bowels the day prior to her procedure.
