Preparing for Surgery
The information you need to be confident about your care. You will meet with your surgeon and other members of the surgical team either in the office or the hospital about your surgery. You should understand the nature of your surgery, understand the basic nature of the procedure recommended and the possible risks involved with the operation.
Your surgeon or a surgical team member will go over your medications and discuss with you any medications that may need to be stopped or changed prior to surgery. The day before surgery, you should take your medications as directed unless instructed otherwise by your surgeon.
Medications that typically need to be stopped prior to surgery include Warfarin/Coumadin, Plavix, Pradaxa, Effient, and other blood thinners, diabetic medications such as Metformin, and blood pressure medications of the class call ACE inhibitors (lisinopril, Zestril, and others). Aspirin should not be stopped prior to surgery unless specifically directed to do so.
You should not take any medications on the morning of surgery unless specifically told to do so. You will be given special soap to shower with the night before surgery; you will also be given antibiotic ointment to place in your nostrils the night before surgery.
You should not eat or drink after midnight the night before surgery. It is okay to brush your teeth with a small sip of water the morning of surgery.
