Bit of a yukky topic laxetives. Basically I have my Lap tomorrow yikes, I am so nervous cannot believe that tomorrow has actually came around so quick.
Basically I had my Pre op last week and the nurse said I would not need a bowel prep so I thought thank god.
Anyway I was at work yesterday and I had a call from the hospital I thought great they are cancelling my appointment already, I spoke to the nurse on the phone and she stated the surgeon actually did want me to have a bowel prep and I had to go after work last night to pick up the laxetives and also have today of work.
On the way to the hospital I was expecting her to just hand me a couple of tablets to take today but no, I have 3 milk shake bottle looking things and 4 packs of powder to mix into 2 litres of drink to take through out today. I cannot eat anything from 8am this morning until after the op so got to go through all of today and tomorrow with no food im starving.
Was wondering if anyone else had to have the pre op laxietives and how they got on with them, how do you know when your clear and when you will stop? x
