Have just for pre op assessment at Uclh- having laparoscopic surgical excision if endo plus haemorroidectomy on tues. freaking out as my consultant is ill and will be operated on by surgeon I've never met & who hasn't seen my previous lap photos from another hospital. Also the nurse said I didn't need bowel prep but I've had piccolax for last two laparoscopies. Is this true? has it changed? Feeling a bit scared now as had placed a lot of faith in my consultant. Wishing you all a good day. Thanks for any advice.
