What to do before surgery?

Once you are through with your pre-surgery consultation, a nurse will call you within 48 hours of your surgery. Prior to surgery, do not consume tobacco, alcohol, or any recreational drugs for at least 12 hours before surgery. It is also important not to eat or drink anything within 6-8 hours of surgery. It is helpful to ensure childcare is taken care of while you will be in the hospital and organise for someone to take you home after the procedure.

 

What should I do after the procedure?

After the surgery, the nurse will inform you about caring for your bandages and incision, how to make a follow-up appointment, what and which medications to take, and what to eat and drink. The nurse will also advise you on the activities you can do and when to do them
