Had Pre-Op Appointments Today

I'll be having a DaVinci Total Hysterectomy tomorrow morning at 8:30. I had my pre-op appointment with my doctors assistant today to explain what is going to happen and to answer any questions me or my husband had. She said one thing to remember is that with the DaVinci it will only be 4 small incisions BUT the inside will have the same cuts as the open abdominal surgery so no lifting over 10 pounds for 4 to 6 weeks.

I then had to go to the hospital to get pre-registered have lab work and get an updated EKG.

Luckily I don't have to have the bowel prep, I've had enough of those with colonoscopys . I can't have anything to eat or drink after midnight, but can take my medicines tomorrow morning with a small sip of water. Tomorrow morning I have to shower with an antibacterial soap then wipe my stomach with a pre-op skin prep kit they gave me.

I'm finishing up some last minute laundry and cleaning now.

Nervous? Yep, very much so!

For csr: Good luck to you - I am sure your surgery will go well. We will be waiting for you on the other side.

For Sally: Not all women are required to wash with antibacterial soap (I wasn't), just like not all women are required to do a bowel prep (I was, but csr was not). Your doc will let you know what he or she wants you to do or not do. Follow all of the instructions. You will probably get most of that information at your pre-op meeting.
