Definitely follow up on that enema. I was not instructed to do one - but the day before, I ate Activia, Oatmeal and green salad. by the morning of - clean as a whistle. Too bad about not getting call backs - I was fortunate to have very responsive surgeon and office staff. Best of luck. It'll be over before you know it!

I hope you hear back from your dr soon. If not, call again.
Sorry about old "Aunt Flo ", but at least it should be her last visit!

Best wishes.

I was on my "nightmare curse" when i had my ablasion done and they just had me wear a pad and those all so sexy hospital panties, they gave me some meds in a iv i remember moving to the operating table and that was it!!! no idea who took the panties off!!! No worries the Gyno deals with this all the time. to have a iuc implanted or extracted my sis in law had to be on hers both times!! yikes.

Re: TAH coming up on the 17th

My guess is the enema is for the night before... so you have time to "empty" before the surgery.

My doc is very thorough, I have to do one the night before and the night before that (I'm on liquid diet 1.5 days before my surgery)!

My horrible visitor is also here this week. My surgery is scheduled for Thursday. I'm really not looking forward to being in full on cramp pain, hungry, having migraines (which are triggered when I don't eat) and giving myself 2 enemas. Oh what a fun week! At least it will all be over soon.

What a better birthday presant than to get rid of the pain!
