So I have a scope monday and tomorrow is prep day no solids or colored foods. I have jello made with coconut water and chicken stock, I have a bunch of broths ready for me to drink all day, along with the laxative regime I am mixing with tea and coconut water. But I have a question.....Can I drink RAW pasteurized carton egg whites? I do not see myself getting enough protein to maintain my muscle mass and am a bit concerned about loosing more weight on just bone broths and jello.

Hi I'm a GI nurse so all I do every day is sedate patients for scopes.  No you can not eat egg whites.  Anything besides clear liquids will produced poop which is something we don't want.  You will not lose any mass from one day without food.   Just make sure you are drinking lots of broth, tea, juice and Gatorade.  Only colors you need to avoid is red and purple.  Apple juice and white grape juice will give you added sugars to help you get through your day as well as lemon, orange and lime jello!  Just make sure you are drinking lots that is the most important part as the liquids you drink is what will help flick out your colon.

Thanks I think I will be fine, I managed to put on about 2lbs prior, Took 3scoops of protein powder before bed last night + 1 in the middle of the night and spent most of yesterday trying to sit in a chair and do yoga instead of power walking to relax. Took my meds early this morning and will have a hour before my broth/jello breakfast and I am supposed to start my laxative regime in 6 hours.

Side notes, I can not have much high calorie/sugar juice as it causes  me to bloat, get gassy, and even distend normally. I am going with coconut water, and a few watered down juices for natural electrolytes and sugars, along with jello versions of both juice and broths (separate) to eat. I also was told I could have coffee so I cold brewed a low acidic version with chopped dates in the grounds. Hoping this works out, fine I think it should.

Well I did nothing but drink juice, broth, magnesium citrate, and 2 containers of miralax yesterday........I have not had a bowl movement since yesterday morning. I am thinking back to the past and I never really had much luck with laxatives when I used to have chronic constipation over 3 years ago. Since then I have maintained a 50-90g of fiber a day intake to regulate it. Yesterday was no fiber at all and I have that constipation pain in my lower right side like I used to where I can feel a hard lump and sloshing noises even this morning. I do no think the docs will be happy, I always joked about a dead section where stuff would back up in my intestines if I stopped stuffing myself to keep it moving, there might be some truth to this -_-

I drank more miralax the morning of the scope since I did not go  the night before with a full double bottle. Still nothing 8 hours later with no food or liquids I went in to get the scope I weighed 128.6lbs. They put me under and when I came out they said there was too much poop in there and they could not do the scope......I went home and feeling really hungry since I had not eaten any solids in over 42 hours had a scoop of protein power since I was hurting and started to fix dinner. I then had to run to the restroom and spent the next 3 hours in there.....I weighed 123lbs when I was done.

Is there a chance my system just locks up when there is no solids coming in like a starvation thing? or is this just a odd timing issue? I mean I go from consuming 150g+ a day of protein and 50-90g of fiber to under 20g of protein and 0 fiber I think some kind of shock to the system would have happened.

No, it means that because you have intestinal damage, it takes longer for you to process food.  Anemia was my only symptom (or so I thought) when I was diagnosed, but I was constipated too.  I had a BM everyday, so I did not realize it.  My GI advised a double prep -- meaning a liquid diet for several days instead of just one.  Maybe this is the reason.  Talk to your GI.

    I've spent a lot of time looking up to see if I can find a post about a similar situation but haven't had luck finding it. I've never been 100% gluten free. As of this past Spring, I consumed gluten regularly (maybe a few times per week?...
