Unhappy Help! How long does diarrhea last after colonoscopy?

Help - I can't seem to stop going. Had a colonoscopy today at 1:00. It is now 9:30. Tried to eat dry toast and water - then spent several sessions in bathroom. Is this normal??? What do I dare eat. What happens if all I can do is drink water?

I can't take another night like last night, when the prep for the colonoscopy had me going from 7 PM until 11 AM today.

Please help me. I am scared.

Re: Help! How long does diarrhea last after colonoscopy?

Hi...firstly, why were you having the colonoscopy?

You can take an imodium...that will help to slow down the colon.
Don't take them continually.

It's all a matter of perspective!
