OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of early oral bowel stimulation with osmotic laxatives on gastrointestinal function, postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) and pain in patients who undergo fast-track abdominal hysterectomy. STUDY DESIGN: This was a double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 53 women who were assigned randomly to either laxative (magnesium oxide + disodium phosphate) or placebo that was initiated 6 hours after the operation. Primary outcome was time to first defecation; the number of vomiting episodes; nausea and pain score were assessed on a visual analogue scale. RESULTS: Time to first postoperative defecation was a median of 45 hours in the laxative group and a median of 69 hours in the placebo group (P < .0001). There were no significant differences between groups in pain scores, PONV and the use of morphine or antiemetics. Postoperative hospitalization was a median of 1 day in the laxative group and of 2 days in the placebo group (P = .41). CONCLUSION: Laxative improves recovery of gastrointestinal function after fast-track hysterectomy but has no significant effect on pain and PONV.
