Thanks for clearing that up. I didn't have to do any bowel prep and I thought maybe I missed something.

Bowel cleansing fears!!!!!

I was not looking forward to the bowel cleansing either. When I had to have a colonoscopy, I had to drink a gallon of some awful thick stuff and boy did I stay in the bathroom all day. For the LAVH, I had to do the Fleet drink and Fleet enema. I found that using the Preparation H wipes worked well because they had the witch hazel in them that soothed the backside. I also had the nonscented baby wipes. Eating lightly the day before helps alot. Good luck to you!

Bowel cleansing fears!!!!!

I have had to do this three times; once for my hyster and twice for colonoscopies. I learned from the first time not to "over wipe", gently pat instead Also using vaseline before things got started and sometimes inbetween was more soothing than the prep h wipes for me.

Oh, and I drank mine out of a stemmed wine glass. Somehow it tasted better that way
