Just had my Pre Op Today

I went to see my Gynecologist today for my pre op appointment. I arrived at 11am but she got called away to deliver a baby. So I popped over to the hospital to do my Pre Op paper work and Bloods.

Then went back to my doctor. I was scheduled to have a TAH with tubes and one ovary taken away, plus adehsions dealt with, appendix out and ovarian drilling. I discussed with the doctor I was afraid of vaginal cuff issues and because my cervix is healthy we decided to keep it unless anything is found wrong with it on the inside.

I asked the doctor if I needed to do bowel prep and she said no as she didnt think the bowel would be causing any problems. She gave me a prescription for pain meds for at home after surgery. I went home happy with no bowel prep. I even danced around my kitchen singing no bowel prep yay yay yay (I must be going crazy).

I had been home 10 mins then the phone rang and my Gynecologist asked me to go back and pick up prescription for bowel prep as the oncologist assisting my surgery said because I have so much severe scar tissue they will do it has a precaution Now that will teach me to dance around my kitchen lol

So tomorrow I will be pooping for England or at least California lol

Surgery is Friday 26th Aug at 7.30 am (PST), have to be at hospital at 5.30am. 30 mins drive there so up early
Doctor said not to expect any sleep tomorrow night with the bowel prep. Feeling really nervous

Re: Just had my Pre Op Today

Have you had a bowel prep before? Try not to worry too much, just follow the directions. Usually you get little bits of sleep in between urges.
Good luck and happy healing thoughts for a successful surgery!
