For day surgery, you should expect to spend around 5 hours in the hospital. This will allow for registration and preparation before the surgery, and time for you to recover from anaesthesia afterwards.
If you are staying in the hospital overnight, you will be taken directly to your ward after recovery.
On the day before the surgery, the hospital staff will contact you to make sure you are well, and to give you instructions on how to prepare for the surgery. If you don’t hear from us by 3pm, please ring the hospital to confirm the time you need to arrive at the hospital.
If you are having the surgery in the morning, please fast from midnight before. If your surgery is due in the afternoon, please fast from 7.00 AM on the day of the surgery.
Please take your regular medications at usual times with a sip of water.
You do not need to stop aspirin or warfarin unless advised to do so. Most patients do not require special tests before the surgery.
