What Can I Eat 2 Days Before Colonoscopy
Anything, generally: 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!
Yes, if...: 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.
Nothing to gassy: 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!
Follow the instructi: 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.
Liquids: 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.See 1 more doctor answer

What can I eat before my colonoscopy? They told me clear liquids, but what does that mean? Coffee’s not clear, but they said I can have that. What about orange juice or soda?
Your endoscopist: Should have given you instructions for your prep the day before your colonoscopy. In general you need to be on a clear liquid diet for 24 hours prior to your colonoscopy. Clear liquids is any thing you can see thru with the restriction of no red food products such as red jello or popsicles. Try to drink at least 60-80 oz of fluids during your prep day.See 1 more doctor answer

I had a Colonoscopy 10 day ago, no bm so took senna, it worked two days later. Next two days, very small soft bm. Two days now nothing. Is this norm?
Colonoscopy: It is normal to have irregular bowel movements for several weeks after a colonoscopy. There is no need to take laxatives in this setting. Your best bet is to eat lots of healthy fruits and vegetables and cereals containing fiber, along with more fluid intake, and let your body reestablish your normal bowel patterns. Good luck.
Yes if it was: A difficult scope. Best to notify the endoscopist so that they can offer the best advice based on the difficulty of the procedure. If you are also running a fever with no other cause you should immediately notify the doctor who did the colonoscopy especially if it is not getting better or is getting worse
