What I Should Eat or Drink Before Surgery?
Day Before Surgery:
Eat a normal healthy diet on the day before surgery, unless your surgeon specifically requests a change in what you eat.
Have no solid food or milk products after midnight.
Day of Surgery:
You can have water, fruit juices without pulp, tea or coffee (without cream or milk) up to 2 hours before arrival at the hospital. Sports drinks like Gatorade (12 oz or less) are acceptable.
