Preparing for an Operation
To ensure your operation goes smoothly and can be performed without delay,
ask your doctor for a written list of instructions on what you can do
to prepare. Most operations require a brief period of fasting. Generally,
if you have an operation schedule you should stop eating and drinking
by midnight the night before, but these times vary depending on the procedure.
Wear loose fitting clothes and do not bring any valuables with you. Bring
your insurance card and a photo ID. Most importantly, ask your doctor
any questions or concerns you have about the operation. It is normal to
feel anxious before an operation, but you have a right to know about any
details that can make you feel more confident.
