    Hi. I had instruction what types of food to eat and how long before the procedure. To clean me out there were drinks with a lot of water! Not too bad really. I was back to normal in two days or so. The colonoscopy was no problem. This doesn't really help your queries, other replies might be more useful. Different routines in different places I suppose. Best wishes.
