How to Prepare for Surgery:
Surgical consultation. You will meet with the Professor Dr. Ashok Govila to discuss your medical history and the procedure. If you have any questions, ask at this time so you understand what the procedure will entail and what to expect from the recovery period. A medical examination may also be performed at this visit, and preliminary tests may be ordered.
Pre-surgical visit. Professor Dr. Ashok Govila will go over the final surgery details with you and give you instructions to follow (fasting - nil through your mouth for 8 hours before surgery) the night before your surgery. Inform him the medications you are taking in case you need to stop taking any of them prior to surgery.
Day of surgery. You will meet with your medical team to go over your medical history and the procedure. The anesthesiologist will explain how the anesthesia works and what effect it will have on you. Double-check that the information on your hospital bracelet is accurate. And if you have prosthetics, wear dentures, or use a hearing aid, be sure to inform your medical team. Inform the team of any drug allergies if you have, if you are diabetic ,if you have thyroid problems ,if you smoke ,if you have hypertension.
Discharge after surgery. You will receive instructions on how to take care of yourself, when to have a post-operative appointment, and what prescriptions you may need. You will be provided with medications to be taken for 3 - 5 days after the surgery by the hospital pharmacy. You will need to arrange to have a family member or friend take you home after surgery. Within first 24 hours after surgery one is not allowed to drive.
Prepare for Surgery: Improving Your Outcome
To best prepare for surgery, take these steps in the weeks and days leading up to it:
If you smoke, stop. It's best to stop smoking at least two weeks before your procedure, but even a few days ahead will help. Inpatient surgery usually requires general anesthesia, and if you stop smoking your lungs will adjust better to the anesthesia. Quitting will also help reduce your risk of infection.
Carefully follow all of your surgeons instructions regarding if and when you need to stop taking any of your regular medication prior to surgery. People who take blood thinners such as warfarin (sold under Coumadin and other brand names) will likely have to stop before surgery.
Control your blood pressure.
Surgery will be less risky if your blood pressure is at a healthy level. This can be a particular concern for overweight patients. If you are able to lose weight before your surgery, it may help reduce your blood pressure and make the surgery easier, professor says.
Take it easy.
Relax and try not to overdo it in the days before your surgery. It is hard not to be anxious, but if you are well rested and in good shape, you will be better able to withstand the physical toll of surgery. Make sure to sleep well on the night before surgery even if it means taking a small dose 5 mg of tablet valium.
After Surgery: Guidelines
You will be encouraged by Professor Dr. Ashok Govila to get out of bed and move around as soon as you can, since being immobilized can be a cause of deep vein thrombosis. Be sure you know when to resume taking medications that you discontinued prior to surgery, and confirm that they won`t cause a negative interaction with any pain killers you might have been prescribed. Follow all of your doctor`s instructions about what you can or can`t do whether the advice is about having sex, driving a car, taking a bath, or walking up and down stairs. Understand that it may take some time before you can get back to all your normal activities. Continue to watch your diet and keep your weight and your blood pressure in check until you can return to your regular exercise routine. Rem
