So as not to discover additional difficulties during the surgery, it is important that you follow the following instructions and consult us if you have any doubts.

  • Avoid smoking during the 15 days prior to the intervention and if you cannot manage this, decrease to a maximum of 2 – 3 cigarettes per day.
  • Remember that it is important you let us know about any medications you are taking..
  • It is strictly forbidden to take aspirin or any medications containing acetylsalicylic acid for at least a week before as it can interfere with blood clotting. If you are being treated with an anticoagulant, let us know (Sintrom, Adiro, Disgren…)
