1. Plan Your Preparation

When you schedule a colonoscopy with your doctor, you'll most likely get a leaflet or brochure. This will contain all the instructions you need to know for the preparation. It's important to read the instructions well and call your doctor if anything is unclear. Make sure your schedule is clear for the day. Also, make sure you've already spoken to someone to accompany you for the procedure. It's also important to purchase essential supplies days before the procedure too. Do this, so you don't have to keep leaving the house to get what you need. These essential supplies include:

  • Wipes
  • Diaper cream
  • Foods that are low in fiber
  • Clear drinks
  • Broths
  • A solution or laxative prescribed by your doctor
