LAVH coming up fast!

hey gals...
So I am new here. Having LAVH monday at 8:30 am... and still not sure if one is ever 'ready' for surgery.
Done a year's worth of emotional clearing, and definitely needed this for pain and bleeding with fibroids, so it will be welcome to be free from that.
I am nervous about being put under, nervous about the bubbles afterwards...and of course worried about the house and everything being in order before I go in.

A quick question...I am trying to minimize the solids i eat leading up to this, they want me to do a 'bowel prep' - I have some really good odwallas and i figured i could use the extra vitamins (not too much VIT E) and yet still not have too much to deal with for the prep...

any thoughts?

Re: LAVH coming up fast!

okay, so i read thru the bowel prep threads here and see that clear liquids are best...i had no info from the dr or pharmacy on this, so i am just going to try and stay off solids for the next 24 hours.

i tell ya, can't wait to get through all this and have a big piece of chocolate cake and a glass of wine!

I am having mine at 7 am Monday morning and all my dr told me to do was clear liquids after midnight tonight. So I have now started that. Stocked up on yummy broth and jello

Mine's at 8:30 am...not gonna start the bowel prep till 5 or 6 pm...

right now it is all about getting the kids ready! they are going to grandmas for the week and I am just running mad trying to remember everything for THEM
My period is trying to start too... just started spotting today, blech. no wonder i have been such a witch on wheels this week, and then on top of it all i had to stop my arthritis medicine weeks ago, so my whole body is aching...

I will be grateful for the *good* drugs when I get home, that's for sure!!!

Re: LAVH coming up fast!

Well, I drank some of the magnesium crud *gag* cherry...with my sprite so it wouldn't be quite so bad, can feel some tummy rumbling going on but not much more, so thinking I should drink the other half of the bottle.

I too will be grateful for the 'good' drugs when I go home! And sleep...sleep and lots of it!

I drank the whole thing about an hour ago...still gurgling...almost threw up when i was drinking it...ewww

I am in bed watching a movie on my laptop, chewing a spaghetti noodle and spitting out the pieces...i am soooo hungry!
Thinking of that first BIG meal after surgery, hell even hospital food will be awesome...
