1. Eat a well-balanced meal prior to the appointment.
2. DO NOT SKIP YOUR MEAL UNLESS OTHERWISE ADVISED.
3. DO NOT USE ASPIRIN for 10 days prior to the appointment. Aspirin is a blood-thinner and will hinder your body’s clotting mechanism. Use Tylenol (acetaminophen) if pain reliever is necessary.
4. Wear loose clothing, so your blood pressure can be monitored throughout surgery.
