Your gastroenterologist appreciates that in that he will be able to have a clear view of your entire colon because you did such a good bowel prep and he will not have to clean you out from the rear end, so to speak. ...Read more

Been on one day of liquids for colonoscopy, starting second day. Haven't taken laxatives yet but noticed last formed stool was green. Why might this be? Should I inform doctor/emergency? Deeper green color.

Been on one day of liquids for colonoscopy, starting second day. Haven't taken laxatives yet but noticed last formed stool was green. Why might this be? Should I inform doctor/emergency? Deeper green color.

Not concerning.: Stool color can vary because of a lot of factors, most notably diet. It is generally not a concern unless the store is bloody or solid black in color, due to bleeding, and will eventually return to normal. Green stool is not usually a concern. Be sure to drink all of your prep. Good luck. ...Read more

Healthy smoothie.: Start with a nice combination of fruits. I'd like to see a source of protein to help with overall absorption and balance. Perhaps protein powder to keep the calories down.

What is the best laxative?

What is the best laxative?

There is no "Best": Being "regular" is very important. There is no single solution for everyone. Adequate hydration (plenty of fluids), fiber, and stimulation of the colon will usually solve the problem. Magnesium helps many people. You can't "od" on magnesium, because it will cause diarrhea. Usually, 500-1, 500 mg will get you moving. Some people can handle more. Prunes are also a good stimulant. ...Read more
