Preop for DaVinci

Mine isn't for another 5 weeks, but what were your pre op instructions form the doctor? Just curious if there are specifics....

Re: Preop for DaVinci

When I met with my doctor for an ultrasound a month before my surgery I asked if there was anything I could do to help prepare and the only thing he told me to try not to bleed. Hmmm...that's what got me into this whole situation....haha! I did step up my excercise routine a little just to make sure I was going in strong but nothing other than that. I didn't have to do any other bowel prep other than a clear liquid diet the day before. I did have to wash with hibicleanse the night before and the morning of surgery but nothing else special.
Good luck to you. Keeping a positive attitude also helps!
