Bowel prep??

Dear Misty,

I did NOT have to prep for this particular surgery. However speak to your surgeon as it
is up to his/her discreation.

God bless!

Bowel prep??

Hi Misty...

Every patient is different, so the answer will be different for each of us even if we are having the same surgery. The only way to know for sure is to call the doctor's office and ask. Then you don't have to wonder!

PLEASE be sure to follow your own doctor's orders on this exactly....whether you do or do not have to do a bowel prep. There are very specific reasons for doing/not doing it, so be sure you are 100% clear on what's to be done.

Good luck!

Bowel prep??

Hi Karen, I am planning on calling my doc tomorrow and asking him, he comes back i think tomorrow from vacation, I am also going to have to ask him for more pain meds. i hate to but I am out and I am in pain all the time. Some days are worse than others.But when i went to the doctor last week i had to see a different doc because mine was on vacation. I asked her for a script for my painmeds, and she looked at me like i was crazy and i didnt need them. I dont know it may have just been me , or where it was late and she was in a hurry, but she just wrote me lortab 5's and 7.5's dont help me that much, but I dont ask for anything stronger, even though I could use it, guess I am afraid they will think I am a junkie , they dont know I am a christian and dont take them unless i have to, well lord i just realized I went straight to a whole different topic,lol I am loosing it,
well anywho. thanks for the reply.
Love and big 's ,
