Her Option Office Cryoablation Therapy 
Pre-Procedural Instructions

-Eat a light meal prior to coming to the office.

-Take any prescription or nonprescription medications that you are on.

-Take 800 mg of Ibuprofen three times a day the day before the procedure.

-Take 800 mg of Ibuprofen the day of the procedure before you come to the office for the Laminaria insertion.

-Make sure you obtain all the medications prescribed by your physician a week or two before the procedure. Some of these medications are not available at local pharmacies and need to be ordered. This will allow time for the pharmacy to order the medications and have them ready before the day of your procedure.

-Bring any medications prescribed by your physician with you.

-You should arrive to the office about an hour prior to your procedure to allow enough time for the Toradol intramuscular injection to work before the procedure is started.

-You will need to have fluid in your bladder for the procedure. You will be instructed to drink 32 oz. fluids after your injection and will not be allowed to void until after the procedure. If you would like to bring your own water that is fine, otherwise we will give you water from our tap. A full bladder is very important for adequate visualization of the uterus during the procedure.

-You can plan on your appointment taking about an hour and a half to two hours. The actual procedure is very quick, it will last only 15-30 minutes but you will need to arrive to the office one hour prior to the procedure. You also need to remain in the office for a short period after the procedure to ensure thar there are no problems.

-You will feel a little drowsy before and after the procedure from the medication administered to you, therefore you should arrange for transportation to the office prior to the procedure and back to your house after the procedure. You should not drive yourself before or after the procedure.

- Please call our office at 724-347-4561 (Option #3) if you have any questions or concerns.
