Stop eating nuts, seeds, and popcorn.
Drink 8 glasses of water during the day and stop eating after midnight.
While some of the colonoscopy prep solutions are only taken the previous day, others will need to be repeated the morning of your exam. The instructions for each solution are below.
You should expect to spend about 2.5-3 hours at the surgery center for a procedure.
You will need a responsible adult (friend or family member) to drive you home after receiving sedation. YOU CANNOT USE A BUS, TAXI, UBER OR LYFT TO GET YOU HOME FROM THE SURGERY CENTER.
