Period Before Surgery

My surgery is scheduled for Monday. I just got my last period today. Will it affect my day at the castle?

My Dr said no it wouldn't but you may want to ask just in case.

Period Before Surgery

I would ask just in case, but most say it would be no problem. My gyn said she would do the surgery anyway, but she was glad when I did not start mine prior to my castle visit.

Take care,

My dr. said

that he would not do the surgery if I started my period. I hope and pray I don't start before my surgery!

Period Before Surgery

I was on my period when I went for surgery. There was no problem at all. My doctor told me that if he had to work around each woman's period in scheduling this surgery, he'd never get any of them done, because most women that need this surgery are having excessive bleeding most of the time.

If you're concerned about it, check with your doctor. Be sure to tell the nurses when they prep you, and they'll give you a pad and a pair of mesh underwear that can be cut off in the OR. And don't be embarrassed by it. The OR staff is used to blood.

Best wishes,
