I'm having my surgery Dec. 16 2011. I'm nervous about going and having it. Is it true that being careful of your diet before you have a hysterectomy is true? I like the avatars. They are very cool.

Re: PreOp

Every doctor has their own instructions for pre-op diet a day or two before surgery.

Now, for just every day diet up until the day before surgery, there is no special diet requirements that I've ever known of. I ate like I always did until the day before. I had to have all clear liquids all day and drink mag citrate the day before.

Re: PreOp

I would avoid foods that you know to cause you gas issues in the days leading up to surgery. Gas pains are not fun. Best of luck!

Re: PreOp

I also had no special instructions for diet until the day before surgery. Then is was light breakfast and lunch, and clear liquids after that. I also did a bowel prep. I did have restrictions on medications for 7 plus days before surgery.

Every doctor is different - follow their instructions to the letter. It is very important.
