Colonoscopy

Anon_5912 posted:
Hi, my DD is having a colonoscopy tomorrow @ 9 am. She did great with the clear liquid diet all day, but just now after brushing her teeth instead of spitting the water/ tooth paste, she swallowed a little bit. Do you guys think that will affect the test? Would a bitty tiny thing of tooth paste create a bowel? Any thoughts? TIA

I would think that it should be ok. I mean seriously how much can you expect out of a three year old?... If it does anything I would think it wouldn't be enough to cause a problem!

Hope all is well and it doesn't effect the tests!
