Be sure to drink 8 eight ounce glasses of water a day. Avoid straining. Add a stool softener like Miralax if needed. Avoid straining on the toilet.

For colonoscopies, we also do bowel cleanses which also reduces the methane concentration in the colon eliminating the possibility of explosion with electrocautery. ...Read more
