A colonoscopy is a procedure to look in the colon for anything abnormal.
It is VERY important that your colon is cleared of all stool before your colonoscopy. This will allow your doctor to see the lining of your colon and look for any abnormalities, like polyps or growths.
To clean your colon; you must:
You are only allowed to have CLEAR LIQUIDS the whole day before your colonoscopy.
When you go home after your procedure, NO driving or working until the next morning.
A nurse from the endoscopy unit will call you several days before to review your instructions and help you with any questions you may have about your procedure.
Plan to spend about 1-2 hours at the facility for your procedure.
