Has anyone had this, and know what it involves?
I'm due to have a laparotomy that may become a laparotomy, to remove a 9.5cm endometrioma. Gynae said I should have a full oral bowel prep the day before in case of any bowel repair is needed during the op. He said I would drink liquid that would clear out my bowel. The instructions that came with my appointment letter give generic instructions for a lap and don't mention the prep.
Called GP surgery and secretary but so far no-one is sure where this will be administered, or if I do it myself - hoping for some clarity on that before long!
I will be in a hotel for the day and night before, so in particular I'm wondering about timings.
Also, what's it like, any tips etc..
