It's customary that prior to your surgery, that the Anesthetists who will be assisting your doctor in your procedure usually visits with you prior to the day of the operation, generally the night before. But well prior to this, your own doctor will most likely advise you as to how to or how not to medicate yourself during the time prior to your procedure.
Keep in mind also, that should you undergo a procedure over the weekend, and your doctor decides to have you stay in the hospital, then you should arraign to have your regular meds with you! Laying in pain over the weekend, or even a long weekend like a holiday period, it's truly imperative to keep your own meds near! Good luck.View Thread
