Bowel Prep before Hysterectomy | No Instructions

From the Pre-Op Hysterectomy Articles List

Bowel Prep for hysterectomyMy hysterectomy is scheduled, but I wasn’t told anything about doing a colon cleanse (bowel preparation). What should I do?


Although a bowel prep is ordered for many hysterectomy patients, it is not an across-the-board pre-operative order for everyone. This is entirely up to your physician, based on your individual circumstance.

Do not under any circumstances take a laxative or give yourself an enema unless your physician tells you to do so. If your doctor does tell you to conduct a colon cleansing (via laxative or enema), it is imperative to your health that you follow his or her directions precisely. If you encounter problems with this or have questions, phone your medical provider for instructions on how to proceed.

These activities are not pleasant, but there is a reason for them. Start your journey to good health on the right foot by following your doctor’s orders in this regard.
