As I have mentioned previously I am currently waiting for a bowel resection and removal of endo. I finally have my letter from the hospital confirming the date.
The issue is that on the letter it says I am able to eat up until 7 a.m. on the date of my admission?! I rang one of my surgeons secretary's, explained the procedure I was having done and asked if this was a mistake. She advised me that it was common practice.
As I explained to her I have had previous surgery, including having my bowel shaved and it unstuck from my womb. Last time I had Picolax and was unable to eat the day before. My surgeon advised that he would be unwilling to operate near my bowel without this.
In response to this she said if there are any issues they will ring me the day before surgery. She also said I may/or may not have to come in the day before anyway to have some injections. Not incredibly helpful when you have a two year to arrange childcare for!
I am going to ring my other surgeon in a week or so if I haven't had another letter from them, I just wanted to see if anyone else has an opinion/experience of this?
