How do I make the preparation for a colonoscopy easier?Gastroenterology Cancer Colorectal Surgery
My uncle mentioned that prepping for the colonoscopy was terribly unpleasant. Do you have any suggestions or tips on how I can make preparing for my upcoming colonoscopy easier?
It depends greatly on what bowel preparation regime is used for the colonoscopy. Different centres and endoscopists have their own regimes, which can range from just 3 small cups of laxative fluid, to over 3 Litres of a bowel cleansing agent.
Speak to your endoscopist on their advice regarding mitigating the experience of bowel preparation with respect to the chosen preparation regime.
