  • Fill out your prescription at the pharmacy 1 to 2 days before the surgery.
  • Take the pre-operative medications as prescribed:you will need to take a few pills 1 hour before the surgery (as indicated on the prescription). Contact us if you have any questions: 514-630-6899
  • If a sedative has been planned, take the sedative medication as prescribed 1 hour before the surgery. It is important to come accompanied and not to drive. If no sedative has been planned and you would like to take one, contact us.
  • If no sedative has been planned, you can safely drive.
  • Make sure you have a bag of frozen peas (or equivalent) in order to apply the cold compresses for the first 24 hours. It is important not to put the ice directly on the skin.
  • For the first 24 to 48 hours, make sur to have ice cream, yogurt, jell-o, pudding, fruit juices and meal replacement products like Boost or Ensure at home.
  • Plan to rest or do light activities for the first 24-48 hours after the surgery.
