DATE OF PROCEDURE: __________________________________ How to Prepare Bowel Preparation Proper bowel preparation is essential to a safe and successful colonoscopy. You will need to purchase an oral bowel cleanser and stool softeners (listed below) two days before your procedure. These items can be found at your local pharmacy. Failure to properly prepare will result in cancellation of your appointment. Please call us if you have any questions regarding the following instructions:
Food containing seeds, nuts or corn should be stopped 48 hours before the procedure. No solid food for the entire day before your procedure.Clear fluids only! Clear fluids include; water, pop, clear juices such as apple juice, white grape juice, white cranberry juice (no orange juice), Gatorade and Jell-o (no red or purple), consommé or clear broth soups, black coffee or tea (No congee!). Drink at least 2 liters (about 12 large glasses) of water throughout the day to help flush out your bowel.
Purchase one box (contains two sachets) of Pico-Salax. You will also need to purchase 2 tablets of Dulcolax.
Take 2 tablets of Dulcolax two days before your procedure. Take the tablets after supper (this is your last solid meal). These tablets are stool softeners and will not prevent you from going to work the next day.
The Pico-Salax is to be taken one day before your procedure. The first sachet is to be taken at 5:00pm and the second sachet at 9:00pm that evening.
To prepare the Pico-Salax, add one sachet to 150mL (5oz) of cold water and stir for 2-3 minutes. The mixture may heat up while stirring. If so, let it cool and drink the entire contents. This is to be done once at 5:00pm and again at 9:00 pm. *Please note that the instructions on the box of Pico-Salax are different from our instructions. Please follow the instructions we give you!
Drink plenty of fluids until 4 hours before your procedure. Example: If your appointment is at 1:00pm, you must STOP drinking fluids at 9:00am. Medications
