Tummy worry

Hello , I know this isn't a big worry like lots of you have . I have PBC, last week I had a very bad tummy and was in hostpital for 3 days .,now on antibiotics which is helping a lot.This Thursday I'm having a colonoscopy.so today I have to start drinking clear soups. Dose clear soups mean no bits of food . ? Do I boil up some veg , drain , and drink the water all day ?

Thankyou for your time to read this

Hi 246810 you might find this page useful as it outlines what constitutes clear food & drink for colonoscopy prep. Probably best to leave out your veggie bits from soup.

Good luck with your tests,

If you want to get your veggie bits out of your soup use a cheap cafetiere. One of them things where you push the plunger down to trap the coffee grounds at the bottom. They do a cracking job of straining any veggie bits out of broths or soups, much quicker and easier than using a sieve.

Good luck with the test.
