Lawrence Orbuch, MD
Notes from Surgeon: These patients all have chronic pain. They are given valium in pre-op and hydrated with IV fluids as well. They have all had bowel preps so they tend to be fluid deficient.
Pre-op: surgeon starts gabapentin and vaginal valium/baclofen cream a month or two before surgery
OG tube always because ports are high
IV poles as far back towards Anesthesiologist as possible - Robotic Case
Use a cushioned face mask
Have methylene Blue 5mg ready to give at beginning of case - this is for the visualization of the Ureter
Pain control: NO TORADOL
