Routine Pre-Operative Instructions.

You must not eat for at least 6 hours prior to your surgery.
You may drink clear fluids (e.g.water/back tea- coffee) until 2 hours before your surgery.

If your surgery is being carried out as a day case (you are not staying overnight) you need to phone Junction Health on the Wednesday prior to your surgery to confirm the time you need to be at Mercy Hospital.

If you are being admitted to Mercy Hospital (staying overnight), you will be seen at 5.30pm on the evening before your surgery by myself and the anaesthetist who will be caring for you.

If you are unsure about your pre-operative instructions please contact me via Junction Health.
