Module 3. During and After Colonoscopy

What can I eat or drink after a colonoscopy?

In this video, Dr. Echavarria and Dr. Gelrud discuss the dietary restrictions that are required after a colonoscopy. You should continue to drink lots of water (about one to two liters) once you are awake and able to tolerate drinking fluids. Most patients will be able to return to a normal, healthy diet after their colonoscopy; however, some patients may need to follow a particular diet if they underwent some sort of procedure during their colonoscopy, such as polypectomy, EMR, etc.
