    How should you prepare for
    Bariatric Surgery?

    Some preparations that will help ensure a safe and comfortable procedure include the following:

    • Bring a friend or family member. If you are having anesthesia that puts you to sleep or sedates you, you won’t be able to drive or get home on your own. Having someone with you will also help you relax before your procedure and help you remember your recovery instructions.
    • Wear comfortable clothing. You may be sore from the surgery or have bandages that cover incisions, so wear loose and comfortable clothes.
    • Plan for recovery time. The physician anesthesiologist may monitor you for a few hours to ensure your heart and breathing are normal, and you aren’t experiencing side effects. Once you’re home, it’s good to have someone stay with you for at least the first 24 hours. You will probably have some soreness, and you may be sleepy. The anesthesia also may affect your reflexes and judgment for a while, so plan to stay home and rest.
    • Be prepared for side effects. Ask your physician, anesthesiologist, or surgeon what type of pain or soreness to expect and how best to treat it. Physician anesthesiologists are specialists in controlling pain and can advise you on prescription and over-the-counter medications and ways to manage pain without drugs. The physician anesthesiologist can also help if you have nausea or vomiting, which some patients experience for a few hours or days after surgery and anesthesia.
