For those of you who have been there done that...a couple questions regarding your NF surgery. I don't have a pre-op appointment with my surgeon since I just met with him this month. I'm just supposed to meet with a nurse to do some lab work a few days before my surgery and go over some questionnaires. I thought I'd ask around regarding the following info instead of bugging the doc's office, none of it's a really big deal - I'm more curious.
Did you have to do a bowel prep?
Did they give you oral antibiotics before surgery that started a couple days before or IV antibiotics the day of?
Did you have a nasal gastric tube thingy (whatever the call it) when you woke up?
How many nights were you in the hospital? My doc said he's pretty sure it will just be one night (unless something unplanned happens). Did you get bored or were you too medicated or uncomfortable to care?
