Your Preadmission Appointment

Your Preadmission Appointment

Sometime before the day of your surgery, you will:

1. Talk with your healthcare provider
  • Write down any questions in advance. Bring them along with your insurance information. Be prepared to discuss:
    • What the procedure involves, and its benefits and risks
    • Your overall health and the health of blood relatives
    • Prescription and over-the-counter medicines; vitamin, mineral, and herbal supplements; or any other remedies you use
    • Any use of alcohol, tobacco, or illegal drugs (what you say is confidential)
    • Any past experiences with surgery
    • Anesthesia
  • Find out if you might need a blood transfusion. If so, ask if you can donate your own blood ahead of time. This is called “autologous blood donation.” You may also want to ask about your healthcare provider’s experience with the surgery you’ll be having.
2. Have any needed tests
  • These may include:
    • Blood tests
    • A urine test
    • Chest x-ray to check your lungs
    • An electrocardiogram (ECG) to check your heart
3. Receive instructions
  • You may learn how to:
    • Do special exercises to help speed your recovery
    • Care for yourself before and after surgery
