Hi there

What a marathon you have to go through ...the last time I went in for endo. Bowel surgery I asked if I could go in early on the op morning because of bowel prep and this was allowed it may worth asking ..all the very best to you


Did u ring an ask in advancr or do you think I shud wait till I go in day b4 an ask if I can take it home. Thank u


I asked at the pre op assessment the week before might worth phoning the ward to ask best of luck


Hi, unfortunately I don't have any experience that I can share. i need to do the same surgery, but am trying to hold off until I have at least tried IVF, unfortunately I will only give IVF one try because I need 2 surgeries for them to be able to collect the eggs due to the bowel being stuck to true ovaries and uterus, I am doing this not in October finally. Becaise of the increase of pain I am having, my colorectal surgeon has said that they will give me the chance of one try and then if doesn't work out they need I start planning the surgery, cause my body cant handle the pain anymore. I would be very interested in hearing about your experience with this surgery. And I hope everything goes well! Will be thinking of you!!!
