Dr. Daniel J. Para answered:

Which types of food can I eat 2 days before the colonoscopy?

Anything, generally

Colonoscopy
Depending on your doctor's preparation, you can often eat a regular diet until the day before your colonoscopy. A light breakfast the day before, and clear liquids all day before your procedure is generally adequate. Remember though, anything you put in your face before your scope, will have to come out with the prep!

What kind of food can I eat the day before my colonoscopy procedure?

Liquids

Water
No solid or soft foods ar allowed on the day of the prep. Any liquid that you can see through (clear liquids) is allowed--tea, black coffee, water, juces without pulp, broths, popsicles, hard candy (ie, Jolly Ranchers). Avoid any red colored fluids as they may give the tissue a bloody appearance and can be confusing.

How to tell doctor? i have a colonoscopy coming up but i can't be on clear liquid diet i have to eat food with my meds how to i tell my doctor?

Your doctor

Proctology
should know what medications you're taking, and be able to advise you appropriately. Talk with your doctor openly about your plans. If you present to radiology with solids still in your colon, they won't be able to do your study. You and your doctor need to devise an appropriate plan.

Dr. Andrew Glantz answered:

How long to do you have to not eat food when having a colonoscopy?

Colonoscopy Prep

Colonoscopy
The prep for a colonoscopy might differ from doctor to doctor, but generally speaking most will advise that the patient eat no solid food while the preparation of the bowel is in progress. Clear fluids, however, are permitted. These include apple or cranberry juice, ginger ale, jello and clear broth.

Risk of colon preps

Colonoscopy
You are appropriately concerned about risks of colon preps. Regardless of type (lavage & osmotic agents, irritant laxatives, enemas) consideration should be given to: age, size, co-morbidlities, nutritional & hydration debilities, mobility, & help at home. Up to 50% may have nausea, vomiting, fullness/bloating, anal irritation. Greater risks result from fluid & electrolyte imbalance.Talk w/doctor.

Follow the instructi

Colonoscopy
Your doctor's office should give you instructions to follow in order to have a good prep. otherwise your test will be cancelled as the preparation is rigorous and lasts 2-3 days of no solids and using laxatives to clean up your intestines completely.

What can I eat after a colonoscopy?

Nothing to gassy

Colonoscopy
Since most people are a little bloated after a colonoscopy, I tend to recommend foods that are not too gassy right after a colonoscopy. Otherwise, eat whatever you want. You just went through a tough ordeal so you deserve a treat!

Can I eat tofu 2 days before my colonoscopy?

Yes, if...

Open-uri20130226-17112-1irj7i7
If a person enjoyed tofu without problems in the past, then she can have tofu the day before her colonoscopy... as long as she drinks the PREP drink and clears everything out of her bowels the day prior to her procedure.
