Special Soap to Use Before Surgery...

Hi~

I just came from my pre-op testing @ the hosptial and was given a special soap to use prior to surgery, it's called Triseptin and it is an antiseptic. Have any of you used it prior to surgery? I am having a TAH in 3 days and feel pretty good about using the soap because I am really afraid of getting an infection afterward and this is supposed to significantly reduce the chance of that.

Just curious if anyone else had to use it~

Best Wishes to you all

Dawn

Hi sdcw90,
I had my TAH 6/24. I also used a special antiseptic soap. Can't remember name. I used it on my whole body except my face and vagina. Especially used it on my tummy. So far my incision is healing well. Had my 26 staples out today and the incision site looks great. Wishing you peace and strength on your upcoming visit to the castle

I had LSH and was not given a special soap but many on this site report that they were given special antibacterial soaps to use.

Best of luck and good wishes to you for your upcoming surgery!

I was not given or instructed to use any special soap. I would imagine I will be given a betadine wash over the belly once I'm sleeping.
