Please be sure to talk to your doctor about any daily medication you are currently taking, especially for heart, diabetes or blood pressure problems; be sure to mention any over-the-counter drugs such as aspirin, Acetaminophen, Advil or Motrin or herbal supplements or vitamins. Your doctor will give you instructions about taking any medication prior to surgery.
Also, please remember to complete and bring in the patient packet given to you by your doctor’s office. If you have misplaced those forms, please follow the link to patient forms where you can print an extra copy.
The Night Before Surgery:
For your safety, please do not eat or drink anything after 12:00 midnight (including water) the night before your surgery. This includes hard candy, gum, or prescription medications, unless ordered by your doctor. Undigested food in the stomach can cause complications, and your surgery is likely to be postponed if you forget to follow this instruction.
At Blue Water Surgery Center, we want to ensure that you have the best possible experience. If you have any questions, please let our staff know.
