Preparing for Surgery and Procedure

Preparing for Surgery

Once you and your doctor decide that surgery will help you, you will need to learn what to expect from the surgery and create a treatment plan for the best results afterward. Preparing mentally and physically for surgery is an important step toward a successful result. Understanding the process and your role in it will help you recover more quickly and have fewer problems.

Working with Your Doctor

Before surgery, your doctor will perform a complete physical examination to make sure you don’t have any conditions that could interfere with the surgery or the outcomes. Routine tests, such as blood tests and X-rays, are usually performed a week before any major surgery.

  • Discuss any medications you are taking with your doctor and your family physician to see which ones you should stop taking before surgery.
  • Prior to surgery, discuss options for preparing for potential blood replacement with your doctor, including donating your own blood, medical interventions and other treatments.
  • If you are overweight, losing weight before surgery will help decrease the stress you place on your body. However, you should not diet during the month before your surgery.
  • If you are taking aspirin or anti-inflammatory medications or warfarin or any drugs that increase the risk of bleeding you will need to stop taking them one week before surgery to minimise bleeding.
  • If you smoke, you should stop or cut down to reduce your surgery risks and improve your recovery.
  • Have any tooth, gum, bladder or bowel problems treated before surgery to reduce the risk of infection later.
  • Eat a well-balanced diet, supplemented by a daily multivitamin with iron.
  • Report any infections to your surgeon. Surgery cannot be performed until all infections have cleared up.
  • Arrange for someone to help out with everyday tasks like cooking, shopping and laundry.
  • Put items that you use often within easy reach before surgery so you won’t have to reach and bend as often.
  • Remove all loose carpets and tape down electrical cords to avoid falls.
  • Make sure you have a stable chair with a firm seat cushion, a firm back and two arms.

Preparing for Procedure

If you are having day surgery, remember the following:

  • Have someone available to take you home, you will not be able to drive for at least 24 hours
  • Do not drink or eat anything in the car on the trip home
  • The combination of anesthesia, food, and car motion can quite often cause nausea or vomiting. After arriving home, wait until you are hungry before trying to eat.
  • Begin with a light meal and try to avoid greasy food for the first 24 hours
  • Take your pain medicine as directed. Begin the pain medicine as you start getting uncomfortable, but before you are in severe pain. If you wait to take your pain medication until the pain is severe, you will have more difficulty controlling the pain

Position Statement on Mesh Midurethral Slings for Stress Urinary Incontinence

The American Urogynecologic Society (AUGS) and the Society of Urodynamics, Female Pelvic Medicine and Urogential Reconstruction (SUFU) leaders have jointly developed a Position Statement on Mesh Midurethral Slings (MUS) for Stress Urinary Incontinence which has been approved by the boards of both societies. The statement reviews the use of the mid-urethral sling in the surgical management of stress urinary incontinence. This statement seeks to clarify the confusion that has resulted from the advertisements by lawyers recruiting women with transvaginal mesh placed for both prolapse and incontinence.

For more information please click here.

FDA Mesh Alert

The FDA wants to inform you about complications that may occur with the surgical mesh that is sometimes used to repair pelvic organ prolapse, and to provide you with questions you may want to ask your surgeon before having this procedure. This is part of our commitment to keep the public informed about the medical products the FDA regulates.

The genitourinary system or urogenital system is the organ system of the reproductive organs and the urinary system. These are grouped together because of their proximity to each other.

The genitourinary system comprises of:

  • Vagina
  • Uterus
  • Fallopian tubes
  • Ovaries
  • Bladder
  • Urethra
  • Ureters
  • Colon/Rectum
  • Connective tissue/Support structures

Improving Your Pelvic Health

Your Pelvic Health & Incontinence

The burden of stress urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse (e.g. “dropped bladder or uterus”), and anorectal diseases (e.g. gas leakage) are common problems that many women suffer from daily. General risk factors for prolapse and incontinence include: pregnancy, family history, obesity, genetic factors, congenital anatomic factors, connective tissue abnormalities, menopause, pulmonary disease, smoking, and chronic diseases.

Minimizing Risk Factors for Prolapse and Incontinence

Below are some suggested methods to potentially diminish your risk for prolapse and incontinence.

  • Pelvic floor muscle exercises
    • Pelvic floor muscle exercises are often performed incorrectly due to a lack of proper education and direct training. Patients may not receive the benefit the exercise potentially offers when done incorrectly. Talk with your doctor and confirm you are using the right muscles the right way so this exercise can help you.
  • Obesity
    • Work to lose excess weight. If you’re at your ideal weight, work to maintain it.
  • Excessive Straining
    • Avoid heavy lifting.
  • Exercising
    • Focus on exercises that minimize the downward forces of gravity, e.g., swimming over gymnastics.
  • Pulmonary Disease
    • Quit smoking – it is a known irritant to the bladder and a primary cause of bladder cancer. If you have a chronic cough, seek treatment for it.
  • Bowel
    • Eat a high-fiber, low-fat diet and stay hydrated to avoid constipation.
