Ask questions!: Have your questions answered before you arrive for surgery. Your doctor may tell you not to eat or drink the night before, and to wash with a special soap before you arrive. If you're anxious, ask for medicine to help you relax. Ask where your incision will be and what side effects to expect. Ask when you will get your results. Take someone with you for support. It's normal to be a little scared!
