Will I need to stop any medications before or after the surgery?
This depends on the type of medications that you are taking. It is important to tell your surgeon and anaesthetist about any medications you take, including over the counter, homeopathic and herbal remedies during your initial consultation. It is also important to tell them if you are taking any medications for diabetes or to thin your blood. Some medications will need to be adjusted or stopped before and/or after your surgery. Failure to do this may result in your operation being cancelled or increase the risk of complications.
