So, today I can't eat beans, nuts, tomatoes, figs, leafy greens, brown rice, whole grain bread

Instead I'm eating white rice with butter.

Funny thing about a colonoscopy... avoid all the stuff that's good for you.

3. "Instead I'm eating white rice with butter. "

And you will have a pristine clean colon wall for the doctor to see if any stalactites or stalagmites are growing.. A good prep means a better diagnosis..
Just think how good the food will taste after the test!!

10. I think I was unnecessarily proud

when my doc gave me an A+ for my prep work. I guess I like to be praised even it's just for pooping like a champ.


He said you wouldn't believe how many people he makes re-schedule because they did a lousy job.


And he found 6 polyps (all benign but I'm on extra watch now) so it's a good thing I did a good job.

when we were all high. I had to go outside for a smoke.
He thought it was very funny.

Just had a prostate biopsy two weeks ago. That was no picnic.

I have it on good authority that upon close inspection my doctor exclaimed, ď Well lookie there, a perfect asshole.Ē

5. When is your procedure?

When I had mine I was only allowed clear liquids, jello and broth a whole day before.

8. This is the latest recommendation

Eat very light and low-fiber 2 days before, then clear liquids/jello/broth 1 day before.
My husband has Crohns and has to have a colonoscopy every other year (used to be annual) so he knows the drill well and it doesnít bother him much. And all the foods we think of as healthy like kale and bran (high fiber) he canít eat any time. He can have well-cooked veggies like broccoli and green beans, iceberg lettuce, and sometimes tomatoes. Heís lucky as many Crohns patients canít even have those.

22. I'm wondering now if an occasional prep WITHOUT a colonoscopy is a good thing?

Cleaning out the pipes?

17. I spent a lot of time worrying about my procedure.

Everyone kept telling me the prep was the worst part but I wouldn't believe them. Boy, did I learn a lesson.

So, from one prep sufferer to another, good luck to you. And, start planning what real food you want to eat Thursday.

19. I Don't Know

I found the prep to be way overrated in terms of horribleness. I kept thinking I was doing something wrong. I guess people are different. I had way more trouble after the procedure. I couldnít concentrate, was depressed for several days, constipated...
