Well I will be the dissenter here. I have had two resections and I did not prep before either of them. But with both of them I ended up getting infections in my incisions and had to have my incision reopened and then packed with wet/dry packings for about 6 weeks. Not a fun time. If I should have to have another, I will definetly prep beforehand to try avoid the incision infections. JMHO
