Preparing for Laparoscopy for Chronic Pelvic Pain

Part of preparing for a laparoscopy for chronic pain involves arranging for someone to drive you home afterwards, as well as possibly during the next day. You should also bring a list of all medications, vitamins, and supplements you are currently taking. The medical facility will give you more information about how to prepare for the laparoscopy.

Laparoscopy for chronic pelvic pain is usually done as an outpatient surgery. This means you will go home on the same day.
 
You will be given instructions about when to come to the medical facility for your laparoscopy and how to get your body ready. You will also get more information about what to expect the day of the laparoscopy and what will happen afterwards.
 
Make sure to bring a list of the medicines you take right now, including:
 
  • Prescriptions from your doctor
  • Over-the-counter medications
  • Dietary supplements, like vitamins or herbals.
     
Also, tell your healthcare provider if you have any allergies. This is important for every visit with your doctor and any time you need to go to the hospital.
 
You should not eat or drink anything for at least eight hours before your laparoscopy for chronic pelvic pain. Your healthcare provider may give you more instructions about what to eat and when. You won't be able to drive for at least one day after the procedure, because of the medication you may be given. You should make plans to have someone drive you home after your laparoscopy.
