Preparation for Surgery




Regular Medications

In most cases regular medications can be continued up to and including the day of surgery. The exception is drugs that increase bleeding risk such as;

  • aspirin and aspirin containing medications and many others. Also many cold and flu preparations contain aspirin so please check before taking them.
  • anti-inflammatory medications such as Nurofen, Ibuprofen,
  • do not take large doses of vitamin E,
  • do not smoke or limit your smoking,
  • do not eat and drink 3 hours before surgery
  • if before surgery you need painkillers please take Paracetamol/Acetaminophen  ( 1gram).

In most cases these will need to be ceased  4 days prior to surgery. If you are taking these medications please discuss with doctor prior to stopping them.
