Note: A colonoscopy prep causes the body to lose a significant amount of fluid and can result in sickness due to dehydration. It’s important that you prepare your body by drinking extra liquids before the prep. Stay hydrated by drinking all required clear liquids during the prep. Replenish your system by drinking clear liquids after returning home from your colonoscopy. If you have any questions, please call our office at 423-267-5677.
