• Before surgery, a pre-op appointment will be scheduled with your doctor at their office or with a nurse practitioner or physician assistant at Domino Farms.

• The lab work for your surgery must be done at least 3 days before surgery.

• Some medications need to be stopped before the surgery. A list of medications will be provided at your pre-operative appointment.

• Smoking can affect your surgery and recovery. Smokers may have difficulty breathing during the surgery and tend to heal more slowly after surgery.

If you are a smoker, it is best to quit 6-8 weeks before surgery. If you are unable to stop smoking before surgery, your doctor can order a nicotine patch while you are in the hospital.

• You will be told at your pre-op visit whether you will need a bowel prep for your surgery and if you do, what type you will use. The prep to clean your bowel will have to be completed the night before your surgery.

• You will need to shower at home before surgery. Instructions will be provided at your pre-operative appointment.

• Do not wear makeup, nail polish, lotion, deodorant, or antiperspirant on the day of surgery.

• Remove all body piercings and acrylic nails. • If you have a “Living Will” or an “Advance Directive”, bring a copy with you to the hospital on the day of surgery.

• Most women recover and are back to most activities in 4-6 weeks. You may need a family member or a friend to help with your day-to-day activities for a few days after surgery.
