Preparation for bladder prolapse surgery

Posted , 8 users are following.

Can someone please share the preparation for this surgery especially the day before. I'm wondering if you have to clean out your colon, etc.   I'm so scared but I know I have to do this.  Thanks.

    I didn't but if you suffer from constipation I would advise using a stool softener for a few days before and you may need it a couple of days after till thing start working properly. I have Crohn's disease so for once it worked in my favour and I had no problems !! Good luck

      I was told about a stool softener for after the surgery but it probably won't hurt anything to do it a few days before too.  I don't really suffer from constipation.  Thanks!
