The preparation for a Lap-Gynae surgery depends on the type of surgery that is to be performed. You should always tell your doctor, the kind of medication that you take- OTC and supplements. You may have to stop them before the procedure. You should always have an attendant with you for the surgery. The hospital also prepares you 3-4 days prior to the surgery. Patients are advised less gaseous diet to ensure a clean bowel. Antacids and laxatives are given to ease the patients.
