Valentines Day surgery!

I have surgery on Valentine's Day! I'm scared and wondering why I do not have to do any bowel prep? What should I eat today and tomorrow to make it easier. Diet suggestions?

Re: Valentines Day surgery!

I'm wondering the same on bowel prep. seems to be a lot of discussion over it, and I've not had a word uttered to me.

Have surgery on 2/13 and no bowel prep for me either. I am just going to eat as "clean" as I can today.

Eat clean? Like just a salad? Or fiber like toast?

My doc is making me tomorrow do just clear liquids and magnesium citrate. Surgery Tuesday.
Call your doctor tomorrow morning to see what you need to do.
I am starting to eat light today so I will not be on the toilet forever tomorrow and into Tuesday LOL
Good luck girl... were in this together

Re: Valentines Day surgery!

I am doing clear liquids tomorrow & go in for preop apt to get other instructions. He did tell me I would do a bowel prep. I've done a gajillion of them in my life it seems so its no biggie I don't know what they will give me. What I had in the past was a pretty good amount of junk. I just drink as much as i can w/o breathing. When I feel like I can't drink but one or two more I grab country time lemonade & use it as a chase. then breathe. lol makes you not notice the taste. I have surgery on my colon & abt 5 colonoscopies & this is what they had me do for those. I'm assuming its the same thing I will do for this one?

Re: Valentines Day surgery!

If you have any questions call your doctor's office. No matter how small or silly the question may be. Im sure they have heard it all before. Getting information from them will be reassuring too. Believe me, ive called with some stupid questions, and felt better each time.

Re: Valentines Day surgery!

i didn't have any bowel prep, and the night before I had sausage and pepper penne and garden salad from an italian restaurant since we were at a hotel out of town.

I never had any problems either and wasn't told any restrictions except no eating after midnight
