Can I drink on the day of my test?

If you are having a colonoscopy or flexible sigmoidoscopy only, you can drink clear fluid right up to the appointment. However, if are having a gastroscopy (either on its own or in the same appointment as a ’bottom’ test), you must not eat or drink anything for six hours before your appointment.
