Hope it helps.
It is better to follow some antireflux measures as follows:
- Do not eat late meals at night
- Eat at least 2-3 hrs before you go to bed
- Avoid excess coffee, mint, chocolate
- Don’t wear tight clothes after a meal and try to sit up for at least 2 hrs.
You can try antacids as needed. Also, find out from your experience what food triggers the heart burn like tomato, fried foods etc. Every morning, drink a glass of water with lime juice. I hope those help.
If you are on Aspirin or any other NSAIDs like Ibuprofen you are at risk of post polypectomy bleeding.
Also if you take any blood thinners like Plavix or Warfarin you are at risk as well .
Your doctor will address the issue after the colonoscopy and usually the discharge nurse are supposed to give you the post polypectomy instructions
