Preparing For Your Appointment

So the preparation for the colonoscopy is the most important part of the procedure. You want to be as clean as possible when the physician goes in with the camera and takes a look because you want to be able to see every small little polyp or lesion behind the corner of the folds of the colon. The preparation includes being on a liquid diet the day before, which means that you could have Jello, juice, broth, water, tea, coffee, any of these things the entire day before the procedure. And then every physician has their own medication that they like to use for a colonoscopy, and that’s usually given the night before the procedure. And that involves drinking a type of liquid that ends up flushing your system out and cleaning everything in order to make sure that everything is nice and safe for the procedure.
