How to prepare for a colonoscopy:

A colonoscopy is an exam that looks for growth and abnormalities in the large intestine (colon) and the rectum. During a colonoscopy, the doctor uses a long, flexible tube with a camera to view the inside of the colon and examine it for any abnormalities. 

Your doctor will provide you with instructions regarding diet and prep before your procedure. General instructions include:

  • Your colonoscopy prep, either a prescribed oral laxative or liquid solution, will begin on the day prior to your procedure to help clear your digestive tract which gives your doctor a better view.
  • On the day before your procedure, you may have a light breakfast or clear liquids only (water, strained fruit juices, etc.). 
    • Do NOT:
      • drink milk
      • eat or drink anything colored red or purple
      • drink alcohol
  • Your doctor will provide detailed instructions at your consultation.
