I used to work for a gastroenterologist and we never put restrictions on people except for the day before.  Believe me, that stuff cleans you out, totally!!!  Maybe things are different now though, I don't know.

I would think it's fine as long as you stop eating when they tell you to and take all the colon cleansing. Let us know how it goes, I have to go for one soon! I actually watched my husband's (it's was overseas, I insisted to be in the room)..it was very interesting, but make sure your colon is cleared out!

well they told me no nuts, seeds or popcorn 7 days prior, also no advil asprin so on. i get that but i didn't think of corn. I know it will be a wonderful cleaning out JK, but i wasn't sure about corn. My mom said it stays in your system a few days, but like u said if that stuff does the job then i will eat it. Thanks so much for letting me know!!!

My mother works at a hospital and I am on the phone with her now, I read your post to her and she said NO. Any type of corn can not be digested and shouldn't be eaten within a week of the procedure.
