Hello Bonnie,

Thank you for this question.

The reason that milk is not recommended here is because it's not a clear liquid. Only clear liquids are recommended.

Also, milk can cause increase production of mucous and that is not desirable before colonoscopy.

Your gastroenterologist wants to see totally clear colon to make the procedure uncomplicated.

You can call the office to double check but most likely a little bit of milk should not be such problem.
