1. Surgical Procedure; Advice to Follow:
You have been scheduled for ambulatory, outpatient surgery, therefore you are responsible for taking certain precautions before you arrive at the Clinic Centre.
1/. You must not have anything to eat or drink after midnight on the night before you arrive at the clinic centre, if your procedure has been scheduled early in the morning.
2/. Do not take any aspirin or other anti-inflammatory for 10 days before surgery. Occasionally these drugs can interfere with the blood ability to clot and can increase the amount of bleeding during and after surgery.
3/. Are you on any medication? including over the counter drugs, be sure to ask your physician whether or not you can continue taking that medication .And if not , how far in advance of surgical procedure you must stop.
4/. Finally, you must also arrange for transportation to and from the place at which the surgery will be performed. Everyone reacts differently to even a simple surgical procedure and there is no way you can predict how you will be feeling after the procedure. So, do not forget, following surgery, you will not be allowed to drive.
