Questions to Ask Your Doctor

Questions to Ask Your Doctor

Having all the information you need about your surgery and post-surgery treatment before you are admitted to the hospital can make a big difference in your recovery. Here is a list of questions we recommend you ask your doctor before you arrive at the hospital:

  • Are there any medications or over-the-counter drugs, including vitamin supplements or herbs, that I need to stop taking before my surgery? If yes, when should I take my last dose?

  • Can I take any medications with water on the morning of my surgery?

  • Approximately how long will I be in the hospital when I have this surgery?

  • Will I need to have any prescriptions filled after I am discharged from the hospital?

  • When should I make the appointment for my post-operative surgeon's office visit?

  • Will I need someone to stay with me after the surgery? If yes, for how long?

  • Are there any arrangements I need to make to prepare for continuing my care, inside or outside of my home, after I am discharged from the hospital?
