I was flicking through posts on endo UK and came across a post about bowel prep prior surgery for removal of bowel endo.
So I emailed my endo nurse early this week and asked whether I need to do bowel as it’s on my rectum. Anyway today she fanatically tried calling me whilst I was working.
It turns out I do need bowel prep!
I have to travel 50 odd miles to collect the meds at silly o clock before I race to work tomorrow 👎
I did ask if my GP could prescribe instead and apparently they can’t without a letter from a specialist and most pharmacists wouldn’t stock citrafleet.
It’s bad that it wasn’t mentioned at pre op or my consultation and it’s taken me to bring it to their attention.
My op would’ve got cancelled if I hadn’t asked 🤦🏽♀️
I’m so grateful for these sites 😊 Not looking to doing the bowel prep tho 😩 but hope it’s worth it and I can start trying again xoxo
