What type of prep did you do for the takedown and connection of jpouch?

As far as I know, if you only own your small intestine, I think you only stay on clear liquids for 3 days. VERY IMPORTANT NOT TO TAKE A LAXATIVE PREP IF YOU ONLY OWN YOUR SMALL INTESTINE! If you own your colon, then I am wrong. Ask your surgeon. Do not ask the nurse or receptionist as they will likely just give you the standard prep instructions assuming you have a colon. Good luck, Rosemary

For my takedown surgery I didn't have to do any type of prep, just couldn't eat or have liquids after midnight.
