How Much Weight Can You Lose From A Colonoscopy
In the likely event that i will lose a considerable amt. of weight after my colonoscopy, will it be possible to keep some o it off with relative ease?
Probably not: Weight loss from fasting or clear liquid diets as well as colon cleansing vary dramatically among individuals. These days, in order to maximize the chances of a clean colon and good exam, endoscopists will recommend 2 or more days of clear liquids first.
