The morning of surgery

    • If you were given instructions by your health care provider to take medicines the morning of your surgery, take them as directed with a small sip of water.
    • Do not take a bath or shower the morning of your surgery.
    • Put on clean, comfortable clothes to wear to the hospital.
    • Arrive at the hospital at least two hours before your surgery. Allow extra time for walking, bad weather and traffic.
