Surgery Date moved up.....and ???? about preop procedures?

My obgyn's office called this morning and moved my surgery date up. Now it's only a little over 4 weeks away.....yes....I'm starting to get scared!

I do have a question about preop procedures I'm suppose to do a betadine douche the evening before surgery.....the lady from the clinic said it can be bought over the counter at any pharmacy. So I went to Wal-mart and looked near the feminine hygene products and found many different kinds but not *betadine*??? And there was no way I was gonna go ask the phracmacy guy behind the counter Anyone know where I can find it since I guess it's required

I had to do a betadine douche before my surgery too - they gave the bottle to me in a little package of "goodies" (including a fleet enema - yippee) at my pre-op appointment. I'd go ahead and ask your pharmacist, or if you're more comfortable you can find a female pharmacist to help you out.

I was really scared before my surgery too - this website was incredibly helpful in answering questions, finding support, etc. No way could I have done so well with the whole process if it wasn't for the information I found here.

Best of luck to you
