Generally, you should be able to eat normally after the colonoscopy. If your doctor recommends diet modifications, you will be instructed regarding this. If you feel nauseous or are having persistent pain, you should inform the recovery room nurse or call your doctor. If you feel the onset of nausea when you start to eat, it is best to stop eating; usually the nausea will pass and you will be able to resume eating several hours later. Sometimes this nausea or upset stomach is due to the medications given during the colonoscopy.

I have had this done in the past with no complications, but today ( the day after), I have an all over sick feeling and small amount of bleeding ( no polyps were removed). I had no cold before colonoscopy, but last night felt sickly and had runny nose and felt achy. The doctor who did my colonoscopy said the I could start back taking meds yesterday. Well being I have bad headaches a lot and can't swallow pills, I take 3 tsps of childrens Ibuprofen ever 4-6 hours until pain subsides. I took 3 tsps last night and 3 tsps this morning. I have only read this morning where one shouldn't take this until 2-3 days afterwards. Could this be my problem? Still having a bad taste in mouth, feeling strange and sickly. Thanks for any help or suggestions!
