Liquid Diet Day Before Surgery........

I'm dreading the liquid diet the day before my surgery. Also, I have to drink the stuff to clear out my bowel. Ewwww! Did anyone else have to do this?

Oh yes. I had to do the same. I found some yummy little Popsicle things that I ate amongst other real liquids. They made it seem like I was eating food. They were called something like Mighty Minis. They are also slow melting. Best wishes for you surgery. The bowel prep. That wasn't too bad either.

URMEGUR! Yes, I had to drink the bowel prep. But I couldn't have anything at all after I started bowel prep at 3 PM the day before surgery. Second dose of bowel prep was drank at 7 PM. I wasn't allowed to eat or drink anything after that. Surgery was 3:30 PM the following day.

Hang in there, though. This too shall pass.

(((Hugs))) You're gonna do great!

My gyno didn't require me to clear out my bowel or go on any liquid diet thankfully. I think I cleared out my bowel myself with my nervousness!! Any way I didn't have any problems post op bowel wise which is always a good thing right?

Re: Liquid Diet Day Before Surgery........

I didn't have to do bowel prep and thought I was home free - only to arrive at the hospital and have the nurse present me with a Fleet enema!

I was allowed *clear* liquids only after 5 PM and nothing to eat or drink after midnight. Lots of vegetable broth, white grape/peach juice blend and white cranberry juice blend.

Clear liquid diet, bowel prep liquid and enema. It was not the most pleasant but not as bad as I anticipated. To be honest I was so busy the day before surgery finishing yp things I was suprised I was not too hungry. Personal or baby wipes were helpful. Broth, popsicles and jello. Best wishes!

Re: Liquid Diet Day Before Surgery........

I had to do a clear liquid the day before, with a full bottle of miralax at Noon, followed up by 3 dulcolax at 4. Let me say it was not fun. Nothing hit the spot, but I got through it. The downside is my surgery wasn't scheduled till 12:30 the next day. By 10:30 when I had to check in, my tiny little veins (despite me drinking a TON of fluids up till 11:50pm) were hard to find. For the Da Vinci they have to put in two IV drips, the nurse was only able to get in one and the other they had to wait till I was knocked out to try to get in.
