Foods the week before colonoscopy

So i have been avoiding all known pain triggers for me. Over the last week i have had very few pain episodes. I go in a little over a week for a colonoscopy. As with most people ive been dealing with pain for several years and finally found someone that is willing to rule out other issues before giving me an ibs diagnosis.

Im wondering if i should go back to eating some of those pain causing foods to make sure they can actually find the Crohn's in my intestines.

I would not venture them if they are going to cause pain. You might make things worse.

In my opinion, keeping to 'safer' foods is a good idea - and then 2-3 days before your procedure start to eat a lighter diet - this is to help with the clean-out process when you do start your prep.

While my experiences may not be what everyone has had- I feel it is worthwhile to share any and all experiences that may be beneficial to others.
