A commonly asked question by people about to have bariatric surgery is the need for laxatives for preparation of the bowel for surgery. A pre-op liquid bariatric diet along with consumption of a laxative helps clear out the system. This removes the likelihood of the bowel contents spilling out into the abdominal cavity during surgery (a scenario which can potentially result in serious infection).
Best Pre-op Bariatric Laxatives
Some good options are:
- Dulcolax Pink (considered to be quite mild)
- Milk of magnesia
