Pre-op Enema

I was told today when my surgery was scheduled to do a Fleet Enema the night before or morning of the my surgery. I am going to have a hysterectomy with the removal of my overy (right one for sure because of a cyst-not sure if left one will go-depends on how test comes back of the cyst). My uterus is large so I am guessing that is why the enema.

Are there any tips on how to do this? Bowel movements have not been a problem for me-I am real regular. I have 2 to 3 bowel movements a day.

Pre-op Enema

I had to do the Fleet Enema the night before. The pre-op nurses suggested that I "Follow the directions on the box and give it to myself between 8-8:30pm. Hold it in as long as possible - even though the urge to go will be strong. Try for 10 - 15 minutes." (The box says 5 minutes.)

I did - and the only problem I had was finding the best position to give it to myself. I was laughing so hard - that it took me a bit longer to actually acomplish the task.

All in all - it was no big deal.

Pre-op Enema

I think must of us had to do the enemas. I hard a really hard time. I did my the night before. I laid down on my side. That was easier for me. Good luck.
