Preparing for your operation

  • Before surgery, you will be seen by the pre-operative team to ensure you and fit and well for surgery, ensuring any pre-existing conditions are optimised prior to your admission. This may include routine tests, such as blood tests and an ECG.

  • The hospital team will recommend any changes to your regular medications that you are taking and instruct you which ones you should stop taking before surgery. If you are taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications, warfarin or any drugs that increase the risk of bleeding you will need to stop taking these medications, up to one week before surgery, to minimise bleeding. Instructions will be given to you by Mr Majed or his anaesthetist.

  • Mr Majed will explain the options for preparing for potential blood replacement, including donating your own blood, medical interventions and other treatments, prior to surgery. He may also discuss the use of donor graft tissue. 

  • You should try to cut down or ideally stop smoking prior to surgery, to reduce your surgical risks and improve your recovery. A smoking cessation programme, via your GP, is the most effective way of achieving this. 

  • If you any symptoms of infection or are being treated for infection including tooth, gum, bladder or bowel problems please inform Mr Majed's offices, and your surgery will be delayed until the treatment has been completed, so as to reduce your risk of surgical infection. 

  • Please consider what assistance you may need after surgery, perhaps arranging for someone to help out with everyday tasks like cooking, shopping and laundry. 

  • Consider practical home preparations such as put items that you use often within easy reach before surgery, removing all loose flooring e.g. rugs, to avoid falls. 

After your operation

  • You will be placed in a sling or brace after the operation, please follow the instructions for its use.

  • You will be seen by a physiotherapist before leaving hospital, and therapy instructions will be given to you.

  • You will be seen by Mr Majed before leaving the ward and his team will arrange your follow up appointment. A sick note can be provided upon request.

  • Once you have been discharged, please arrange for someone to take you home.

  • Please use ice as directed, this will help decrease swelling and pain. 

  • Take your pain medicine as directed. Begin the pain medicine as you start getting uncomfortable, but before you are in severe pain. If you wait to take your pain medication until the pain is severe, you will have more difficulty controlling the pain.
