Just got back from pre-op


Hi ladies!!!! I guess every experience is a little different, depending on where you live and who your doctor is........Today was my pre-op appointment, and all they did was the basics, blood pressure, weight, height, a million questions........But no blood work, no urine test!!!! Also, the best thing for me.......NO BOWEL PREP for me!!!!!! I was soooo happy about that!!!!! I was getting nervous about having to do a bowel prep.!!!! I run to the bathroom when I am nervous already, so I was glad not to have to add to it!!! Best wishes to all the other ladies in waiting!!!! Can't wait for next Thursday, I am happy and nervous, all in the same breath!!!!!

Barb,
Glad To Hear All Went Well With Your Pre-op. I Also Got The "no Bowel Prep" Go Ahead And Was Extremely Relieved. Because All That I Had To Do Was Answer Questions, Mine Was Actually Done Over The Phone Yesterday, I Didn't Even Have To Go In. I Can Tell You My Nerves Are Absolutely Shot Right Now And I Still Have 10 Days To Go. I Know How It Is To Be Excited And Nervous At The Same Time. Here's Keeping Our Fingers Crossed, That We Do As Well As Some Of The Women Who Have Posted On Here To Have Had "no Problems".

I had my pre-op phone call yesterday; lots of questions! I go in on the 11th for blood and urine testing and that's it. No bowel prep for me either! YAHOO

The nurse said that the morning of the surgery, when you are prepped, that is when they do blood work, and basically, all they do is a pregnancy test.......But maybe that is just in my case, because not even a year ago I was in for a tubal and an ablasian...But, none the less, I am happy about it!!!!!

Nope, not just you, not too long ago a member's surgery was cancelled right there (just before going into surgery)because her pregnancy test was positive! :wowee: THAT was close!
My blood work was done at the pre-op the week before.
Glad to hear you're in good "spirits"! The pre-op helped me a great deal also! I felt very calm after leaving!

Same surgery date!

Hi! We have the same surgery date. I had my pre-op with dr. on Tues. but I have to go for a pre-op at hosp on Mon. Blood draw and paper work. And I am so jealous, I have to do the whole bowel prep. UGH!! Bm's already cause pain and bleeding so I am kinda nervous of the day of cleansing!!

Good luck and God's blessings,
Rebecca
