You will be sent your fasting and admission times via text the afternoon before your surgery. Theatre lists can change rapidly, depending on emergencies in the hospital so we do not know the exact order of the surgeries until the day before. This is why we cannot tell you until 3pm on the day before your surgery date.
We will text this to you as soon as we know. Please ensure that you are available to come to the hospital from anytime from 6.30am – midday.
It is important that you do not eat or drink anything on the day of surgery as you will be having a general anaesthetic and your stomach needs to be empty. Please follow your pre-op diet as instructed by our dietitian. Any medications can be taken with a small sip of water very early in the morning (by 5am). Some medications will need to be ceased beforehand. Please check with Dr Adib about these.
