I will be having my approx. 124th colonoscopy on Friday, February 13 th. Okay ... it will be my 13th . Anyway, this is the first colonoscopy as a non-smoker. I had no problems with the fasting day before the colonoscopy, because I lived off coffee with no milk and sugar, tea, 7-UP and water that day and smoked my hunger away. I have a list of forbidden foods for the prep and allowed foods, but I still can't make a rhyme out of it what really is allowed and what not. Obviously it is a liquid diet. It mentions that gelatine is allowed. So does that mean that I am allowed to eat Jell-O (as long as it is not red or purple?)
So basically, what do you consume the day you are preparing for the scope which means the day before the scope?
I appreciate some suggestions since smoking my hunger away doesn't work anymore.
