Your colonoscopy is scheduled for August 13th at 11:00 A.M. As it's your first one and you want your gut prepped properly so you don't need to repeat the procedure, let's do a rundown of the rules.
First, there will be no foods containing seeds, including berries, strawberries, flax seeds, etc., for 3 days before the event. Also, you will not eat nuts, onions, corn, peppers during those same 3 days. Got that?
Second, the day before your colonoscopy, August 12th, you may only eat or drink a clear liquid diet. Clear liquids include Jell-O with the following flavors only: pineapple, peach, lemon. You can consume yellow popsicles, clear chicken broth, apple juice, white cranberry juice.
Let's emphasize: No liquids or foods that are red, green, blue, or orange colors. Got it?
Third, on the morning THE DAY BEFORE your colonoscopy, you must mix Colyte solution as directed on the lable with added Crystal Light Lemonade to get it down without gagging.
Fourth, at 5 PM the day before you procedure you will take 4 bisacodyl (Dulcolax) tabs with 8 ounces of water.
Fifth, At 6 PM the night before your colonoscopy, you will drink one glass of Colyte solution EVERY 10-20 minutes until 2/3 of the jug is gone. Drink lots of water afterwards. You will be in colon cleanse mode so stay close to the bathroom.
Sixth, on C Day at 6 AM you must finish the Colyte.
Seventh, get to the hospital at 10AM for check-in.
Leave your jewelery and valuables at home, so no wearing your blinged-out watches, big boy.
Also, tell your Herculodge readers that there will be no posts on C Day. Dig it?
Good luck, bro. I'm praying for ya.
