Planning for your surgical procedure

Talk to your doctor about what medications you should or should not take before your procedure. If you are taking medications for blood pressure, heart or lung disease, seizures, or diabetes, it is important that you clarify what time these should be taken. If you take blood thinning medication, including aspirin, discuss this with your physician. Bring your inhalers and hearing aids with you.

Be sure to take the following steps when preparing for surgery:

  • Drink plenty of fluids the day before surgery, 5 to 6 glasses of water
  • No drinking or eating after midnight, including hard candy, gum, or water
  • Ask your doctor about taking prescribed medications
  • Only take small sips of water to take medications
  • Do not bring valuables to the operation
  • Hearing aids, contacts, and other assistance items are fine to bring, but be prepared to take them out
