Thanks for all the reviews ladies. I will find out today if I have to do the wonderful prep or not. Hoping for the not but also might be a good idea to do it because I do have problems in that area and don't want to come home and not be able to go :-)
They gave me that soap. Then at the hospital they gave me a package (of two) wipes that I had to use for 30 seconds each on the surgical site. I'd forgotten about that! Good luck!

Re: Surgery Friday Yikes!

Well found out yesterday in my preop that I do have to do a bowel prep. I have to take two Dulcolex tablets today and then two again tomorrow and around 4-5 tomorrow afternoon I have to mix a baggie full of Miralax that they gave me into a 64 oz Gatorade and drink it all down. FUN!!!

My dr also was filling me in on what causes would prevent him from going through with the da vinci and having to go with a straight line cut; like my ovaries hiding behind the bowel or something like that. So fingeres crossed everything is free floating where it should be!!!!

Kristy where are fou from? I got to drink the same stuff to but I choose 7-up instead of gatorade. They said I could have that. It also said that if my bowels run clear after only half of it I will not have to finish it! So if I was to informative! Good luck with your bowel prep tomorrow and going to the castle on Friday! I will be thing about you!

Re: Surgery Friday Yikes!

I am from Ohio, Dayton area. Thanks for the info! They didn't tell me that, but I figure drinking the Gatorade or anything mixed with the Miralax has to be better than the awful stuff you have to drink for a colonoscopy. Had one of those in 09 and that was bad!

Good luck Friday to you as well!! I will go into surgery knowing there is someone else going right with me!!!! We'll discuss our post op recoveries in a few days!
