Am I able to consume clear protein drinks (containing no juice, fibre or carbs) the day before my colonoscopy? Also, is red cranberry juice ok? Thanks

FOLLOW THE: INSTRUCTIONS....do not "improvise"!!! and Cranberry juice is a DEFINITE NO NO (Coloring can alter the appearance of the bowel lining!) Your so called "Protein Drinks" probably have a RESIDUAL (matter which also may obscure the details of the lining or hide very small polyps!!!) Good Luck and BE WELL! Hope this helps! Dr Z

What kind of protein drinks are fine for colonoscopy prep?

What kind of protein drinks are fine for colonoscopy prep?

All: As long as there is no bulky fiber (fruit/vegetable products), protein should be 100% digested in the small intestine. As you get closer to colonoscopy time, go to clear liquids. Up to 6 hours before, we allow shakes.

If I did one bottle of Suprep for my colonoscopy and things are running completely clear and resemble urine, can I stop drinking this nasty drink?

If I did one bottle of Suprep for my colonoscopy and things are running completely clear and resemble urine, can I stop drinking this nasty drink?

Absolutely not!: Finish your colon prep, as per provided instructions. If the prep is inadequate, your colonoscopy will be too, and you'll be invited back with a bigger prep to try again.

Keep drinking: Finish all liquid, and you will probably be ok. As long as the liquid is watery and without solids you should be ok.

I am having a colonoscopy/endoscopy. Can I consume any type of protein shake/powder or solid food on Mon., my papers just say to avoid food after 4pm?

No only liquid: You are supposed to be on liquid diet for two days prior while getting the prep to clean your colon and flush it from everything so it will be super clean during colonoscopy only water and juices and jello not even milk allowed. No milk shake or smoothies no solid food, you are getting very poor instructions and bad preparation for an important test any doubt call your doctor

Ok to drink myoplex lite with colonoscopy prep?

Never heard of it: The doctor who orders colonoscopy would be able to guide you best. Call him or her or their nurse to help you and guide you further.

What is the liquid you drink before a colonoscopy made from?

What is the liquid you drink before a colonoscopy made from?

Water and salts: Generally most colon preps are made of water and a mix of salts to both replace those expected to be washed out by the prep, but also to make it "neutral", so your body chemistry will not change much with the large volumes of fluid ingested. Substances to change the taste are also generally used too, although most peolpe still say it tastes terrible : (.

Can I go to a party after my colonoscopy? My procedure’s on friday morning and I want to go to a party that night. Is it safe for me to go? Can I drink?

Can I go to a party after my colonoscopy? My procedure’s on friday morning and I want to go to a party that night. Is it safe for me to go? Can I drink?

Thanks: Thanks for your question. Generally we advise patients not to drive or operate any heavy machinery until the following day after a colonoscopy, because the medicines used to sedate you can cause cloudy thinking and altered judgment. There is no medical reason you couldn't go to a party if you are feeling up to it, but I would strongly suggest you go with a trusted friend who can drive you and stay with that friend for the duration of the party. Let him/her know that your judgment may be impaired so he/she can "look out" for you. I would suggest not drinking alcohol that night. I hope this answers your question. Good luck!

Follow instructions: Colon prep instructions will be given to you, just follow them carefully. Usually you are allowed to have liquids until 12 hours before doing the procedure.

Is it possible for you to drink ensure before a colonoscopy?

Probably yes: The usual dictum has been to remain on clear liquids the day before a colonoscopy exam. However, not uncommonly do we perform a colonoscopy on these patients and only find this out afterwards and usually the bowel preps are regarded as adequate. Please discuss this issue with your performing colonoscopist before doing so however.

What kind of things can you drink if you are having a colonoscopy?

Clear liquids: Typical bowel prep instructions for a colonoscopy include a clear liquid diet the day prior to your colonoscopy or any oral liquid that you can see through. This includes water, apple juice, sports drinks, tea, black coffee, soda, etc. The key is to drink plenty of fluids during your bowel prep for your colonoscopy.

Do I need to drink all of the prep for a colonoscopy? It makes me sick

Do I need to drink all of the prep for a colonoscopy? It makes me sick

Yes: Drink it all to be sure the prep is good. The worst would be to do "most" of the prep (which is absolutely no fun) but then get to the colonoscopy and it be inconclusive because it wasn't clear enough to see. Then you're back at square one, starting over! Good luck! No one likes the stuff.
