Upcoming Surgery 4/10

Well my total abdominal hysterectomy is scheduled for April 10th. Now that it is official, I am really scared and nervous. Not about not waking up or something going wrong, but about the pain physically and mentally afterwards. I have had surgeries in the past, but nothing this severe. I am starting to do everything to prepare as much as possible including with work, home, etc, but still can't keep my mind off of it and seems like it is taking forever for the day to get here. I had my blood work done, ultrasound and everything came back normal. Did my pre-op appointment. Now all that's left is the waiting and then easter weekend I have my 72 hour blood work and then bowel cleanse the 9th, and then surgery the 10th. I have an embarassing question, never done a bowel cleanse before. Is it absolutely horrible?

Re: Upcoming Surgery

I had to do one prior to surgery last September. Its not great but not awful either. I thought I was going to hate it, but it wasnt bad.

I will say that several times I thought I was going to poo myself but never did. You will be a tad gassy with the bowel prep

Re: Upcoming Surgery

I meant on the 9th.. I know its a little wired since most of
Adies on here have the preop few days before surgery, but mine its a day before.. I guess I will know for sure when hospital calles me they may change the preop date.

Re: Upcoming Surgery

i see, all hospitals are different. good luck at your preop. mine went great and fast. just basic ears, nose and throat and questions about your medical history. really simple. received letter from hospital today about bowel cleansing, i start it at 4pm & 6pm on the 9th. to top it all off, all day/night the 9th i am stuck to clear liquid diet and then no food the day of surgery with surgery not till 2pm, ugh not fun
