Heavy Period on pre-op?????
Has anyone experienced a heavy menstrual cycle during pre-op liver shrinking diet??? I had my period the week before I started the diet and then 3 days into the diet my period came back and it's been heavy and hasn't stopped for 9 days now my surgery is on Friday I really don't want to be on my period going to the hospital ughhhhhhhh
I didn't experience that pre-OP, but it did happen to me years before. I contacted my physician. He gave me medication to stop my period (partly so that he could do a pap smear to make sure everything was OK). My period stopped within 12 hours. The pap smear was normal.
My advice: contact your primary care physician immediately.
