Patients of Dr MacDonald are always welcome to call the clinic if they require assistance. However, below are most documents which will explain in detail the pre-opertive and post-operative care for your surgery.
Minor surgery is a same-day procedure and usually takes about an hour of your day. You can eat and drink before the procedure and drive yourself home unless the surgery is impairing your vision or the use of your hand.
Surgery in the main operating room is usually same-day but will take several hours because of time spent in recovery. You will need to arrange for someone to drive you home and to stay with you for the first 24 hours. You cannot eat or drink anything from midnight the night before. This includes coffee, tea, or water in the morning. Please take your morning medication with a sip of water unless advised otherwise.
