bowel cleanse before hysterectomy?

Do you think there's really any difference in the type of cleanser I use?
What's the difference between a fleet enema or taking a mild laxative?

You need to follow your doctor's instructions to the letter as he or she will expect your internal organs to be in a certain condition and if they are not due to you not following orders, then you are putting yourself at risk. If you are unhappy with what was prescribed, call your doctor and discuss it with him or her. Good luck with your surgery.

Oh of course I'm following his orders, but just wondered if there was a difference.

Well, there is a difference in the method of administration. One is taken orally and the other is a liquid taken anally. I am not sure if that is what you are asking though.

Yes just what I was looking for! Also isn't there just a plain old enema too?

Fleet enemas have additional chemicals in them that cause a bowel movement. Plain water will soften stool but might not force a bowel movement. Hope this helps.
