The night before surgery you should have nothing to eat after midnight. You may take your regular medicines with sips of WATER only. If you are diabetic, please follow your primary care physician’s (PCP) advice for taking your diabetic medicine, especially insulin. NOTE: I personally do NOT recommend stopping aspirin or other anticoagulants such as Coumadin before surgery. If there are any questions, please have your doctor call me.
