Hi I am going to have a hysterectomy done on 1-6-14 and I have to eat a lite meal and not sure what I should eat can you help?
Generally no: Typically you need to adhere to a clear liquid diet the day before your colonoscopy and you need to complete an oral bowel preparation. A clear liquid diet is any liquid you can see through when poured into a cup (juice, broth, clear sodas, popsicles, jello, etc). If you don't adhere to these things, the quality of your colonoscopy will be poor. Contact your GI doctor for details. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a CT scan with contrast they told me not to eat or drink 4 hours before. But i forgot and i ate. What will happen?
Likely nothing: The old protocols for a ct scan with contrast stated that there should be nothing by mouth 4 hours prior to the study. The rationale was to prevent vomiting thought to be caused by the intravenous contrast. The contrast agents currently used have very little likelihood of causing vomiting, so most centers will now allow you to drink clear liquids prior to the study. Still best to avoid solids. ...Read more
What can I eat after I finished the Low-iodine-diet? I had papillary thyroid cancer. Do I have to avoid anything or eat like a normal person? Thanks!
Why?: Were you on a low iodine diet for a test? Did you get a partial or total thyroidectomy? Ordinarily you should be able to eat anything. You would need to take any thyroid replacement pills they give you everyday. You would need your TSH level and Thyroglobulin screened periodically. Hopefully, given how young you are, you have an endocrinologist who has also screened for MEN. ...Read more
Why do I get diarrhea within 20mins after eating any kind of BBQ or spicy food? This was never an issue for me before I have always loved spices!
Not unusual.: It is not unusual to have urgent bowel movements after meals that are high in fatty content. However, what is unusual is to have a change in bowel habits. What I would recommend is to increase the amount of fiber in your diet for now. If this does not work, or if you see any evidence of bleeding, unexplained weight loss, or other symptoms, see your primary care doctor. Good luck. ...Read more
