no bowel prep?

I am having a total laproscopic hysterectomy on Nov. 17. The assistant called me today to confirm and told me not to eat the night before but no bowel prep. I said are you sure? She said the dr. doesn't always order one. I said "even with laproscopic? " she said yes. Is that possible? My case should be pretty simple but still . I wonder if he is planning lapro? That is what I discussed with him. Any clues? Amila

When I spoke to my doc last time she said the new guidelines indicate no bowel prep necessary is most cases. I'm having DaVinci Hysterectomy with Cystocele repair on 10/25. Looking forward to no prep but who knows - my pre-op is next week! All the best with your healing!

Re: no bowel prep?

I have had a diagnostic laparoscopy and a lap assisted hysterectomy, neither requiring a bowel prep!

When I had a laparoscopy and we KNEW the surgeon was going to be working on the bowels, then I had a prep!

Many best wishes to you for your upcoming procedure!

I had a LSH/BSO and didn't have to do a bowel prep, I also got to eat up until midnight the night before.

I am having a TAH and have to drink magnesium citrate starting 4pm the day before surgery. Not looking forward to it. Dr. says it makes it easier by having the bowels empty.

I'm meant to be having a LVH on the 29th. My Doc has said its a 60/40 percent chance they can do it...fingers crossed.

Re: no bowel prep?

LSH no bowel prep here either! And everything went great too. I was surprised that I could eat right up until midnight before the procedure at 10:30 a.m, next morning. However, cannot eat or drink anything once you wake up the day of surgery. They let me take a sip of water to take an anxiety medication the morning of the surgery, only because I'm a worry wart.
