Please bring the following items with you on the day of surgery:
You may also want to pack:
It is not necessary to bring soap or linen. Your family will keep your belongings until you are settled in your room after surgery.
It is best to bring as little as possible to the hospital and to leave cash, jewelry and other valuables at home.
The night before surgery you should have a well-balanced meal. It is best to avoid very spicy food and foods that are high in fat.
Do not eat or drink anything after midnight the night before surgery. This will help prevent any nausea from the anesthesia.
