I have a colonoscopy scheduled for tomorrow at 1 pm. I stupidly, mistakenly, ate scrambled eggs w about 8 drops of Worcestershire sauce and two pieces of cinnamon raisin toast w honey at 11am. I now read I should have only clear liquids all day. There will be 26 hours between food intake and colonoscopy----- AM I ALLRIGHT TO GO THRU TEST?

This is Dr. David

you can do the colonoscopy, but your GI doctor will see stool in your colon tomorrow and may not see your colon walls every well

you should tell your GI doctor about what happened tomorrow.

they may want to reschedule your colonoscopy to next time when you will have a better prep

let me know if you have other questions.
