Hi everyone. As some of you know I will (hopefully, if I can get rid of my throat infection) be having a 9cm cycst removed with both fallopin tubes and ovaries on Friday 14th November. I have read a some very useful information on here and I don't know what I would have done without everyone's support, so thank you.
But I wonder if anyone has any tips that made their life easier both pre and post op?
I will probably have to stay in overnight and have to have a light breakfast before 7.00am on the day before the op (what is a light breakfast?) and only clear liquids (plus jelly) on the day before the op, what did people drink?
Also I have to take 4 Bisocodyl tablets the morning before - I have IBS and the outcome of this concerns me. One would be bad for me but 4?Has anyone else been in this situation?
How did you cope in the week leading up to the op?
What did you take into hospital on the day of the op and what did you pack for after? Presumably you need two separate bags? (I've been told to only take dressing gown, slippers and toiletries in on the day (what toiletries?)
How did you manage the pain and was there anything you did that made your life easier once home?
Sorry for all the questions, but I was rushed through the pre-op because they were running late and I had been booked in for a lung function test, so I didn't have time to ask many questions.
