Went to Pre- op today, Surgery is Monday Aug. 6th

Took my list today and Dr. covered everything. Does'nt know if she can do the Hysterectomy vaginally, may have to do an abdominal. I am very nervous. my back pain today is awful, and I was told NO pain meds til after the surgery. Any suggestions? Also, no talk about bowel movement before surgery. Will they give me something at the Hospital? I guess I am just anxious. Please give advice?... DeniseP63

I'm Going the Same Day!

HI,

I had my pre-op today too. And my surgery is Monday also. My Dr. told me to use a Fleet enema or a Dulcolax suppository the night before and not to eat anything after midnight.
Also, use a Heat Therapy on your back, they help some. I was also told not to take anything until after surgery.

Good Luck,

Dorothy

I had my phone registration with the hospital today, pre-op tomorrow, surgery on Monday. Maybe I should take one more pain pill tonight before I am cut off! LOL! Really, I only take them if I need them.

I have been under quite a bit of stress lately and the surgery is looking like the gold at the end of the rainbow! I am ready for it!

I will take my list, too. I will post tomorrow. Good luck, ladies!

We have the same surgery date. I only have my blood type & cross left to do on Saturday. And my doctor did not order any bowel prep. I think I'm getting calmer the closer the day comes. Hope that lasts till Monday!
Good luck and we'll compare notes on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Hello to all of the posters on this thread. I write to you from the "other side". I am into week 3 of recovery and it is getting better and better. The most important thing to share with you.... the WAITING is BY FAR the HARDEST part. I feel NONE of the stress I felt up to the surgery date. I had a TAH w/BSO and my doctor didn't require any kind of bowel prep. I did start taking a stool softener two days before my surgery. That was what my old ob/gyn suggested before my two c-sections and I had an easy time with the first bm back then. Also, don't get too upset if it turns into an abdominal hystectomy... just focus that once it's all done you will feel so much BETTER! It's all a means to a wonderful end. Hang in there and best of luck to you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I didnt realize about the pain med thing. I take mine sparingly also only 2 per day but I had to just go three days with none and the pain got so bad I couldnt stand it I cant imagine six days YIKES...Ill put that on my list of questions.

My preop instructions regarding pain meds say no Aleve, Asprin or Ibuprofen (nothing that might encourage bleeding). Acetaminophen (Tylenol) isn't listed so I'm pretty sure I can take that if needed. I usually don't have to take anything.. so am hoping that will continue.

I will be sure and double check on the Tylenol question when I go in for the bloodwork.

I had to stop all stuff 2 weeks prior to surgery EXCEPT Tylenol... I could take that right up to the night before.
