Thanks for the query

Yes they will shave the pubic region and also give u an enema. You will have to stay fasting 8 hours before the surgery. U might have to be on the catheter for upto 4 weeks depending on how fast the wound is healing. I am not too sure about the position u will be in, mostly it will be in supine position
