Tests will be performed several days prior to your day of surgery. Your physicians and the staff at The Surgi Centre will instruct you as to the dates and times when these will be done.
Unless your physician tells you otherwise, please do not eat or drink anything after midnight the day before your surgery. If you are taking medications you should take them with a small sip of water the morning of your surgery. If you take insulin, anticoagulants, or MAO Inhibitors (mood elevators), follow the instructions of your physician.
On the day that your procedure is scheduled, you go directly to The Surgi Centre. An anesthesiologist will interview you before surgery if you are having general, spinal or monitored anesthesia (twilight sedation). You will discuss questions regarding your anesthesia experience and use of medications and drugs.
