Preparing for Your Surgery
The information in this page will help you having a more manageable experience.
Please read it through and contact us should you need further assistance.
Several days before the procedure
ASK QUESTIONS! Write down any questions you have about your procedure and discuss them with your doctor. There are no bad questions.
Make sure your doctor is aware of any medications you are taking, including prescription drugs, aspirin and any other over-the-counter medications, herbal remedies or vitamins. Ask your doctor if you should stop taking any or all of these for a period of time before your surgery.
Arrange in advance to have a family member or friend drive you home after your procedure. YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO DRIVE AFTER SURGERY.
If you work, arrange for enough time off to recover fully from your surgery. Ask your doctor when you will be able to resume driving, work and other normal daily activities. A period of recovery at home is common.
The day before the procedure
DO NOT eat or drink anything after midnight on the day before your surgery. This includes gum, water, breath mints and vitamins.
Ask your doctor for specific instructions, as additional guidelines may apply to your case.
