Colonoscopy with Bowel Prep: Go-Lytely, Colyte, Trilyte, Nu-Lytely and Others
This ten-page illustrated handout helps people prepare for a colonoscopy, which is a test used to look inside the large intestine, also called the colon. It explains what a colonoscopy is, how and why it is done, and specifies that the patient will need to use a bowel prep to clear the colon of stool in preparation for the test. It includes checkboxes where a healthcare provider can indicate which bowel prep the patient should buy. It contains guidelines to help the patient prepare, providing a timetable and specifying what they must do on the day before and day of their test to make sure their colon and rectum is empty of all stool. The document explains what will happen during the test, including questions the staff may ask, and discusses what the patient can do after, identifying those symptoms for which a doctor should be called.
