    Surgery discharge instructions

    On the day of surgery:

      • Nothing to eat or drink after midnight!
      • Take all of your regular meds EXCEPT:
        • any long-acting insulin if you are a diabetic (e.g. Lantus)
        • any of the previously-discussed medications (blood thinners, immunosuppressants, ACE inhibitors, etc…)

    If you have a pre-op visit (or call) with anesthesia and they tell you to follow a different plan, please notify us immediately.
