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
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!

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 : (. ...Read more
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 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! ...Read more
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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
