Diet to follow before Da Vinci Robotic myomectomy


#1

Hi

Was anybody advised on not consuming garlic, gingko biloba, vitamin E before going for a myomectomy? I have a myomectomy in another twelve days and have stopped taking vitamins but still take maca. I also consumed garlic recently, not sure if this will impact anaesthesia. My doctor did note down the supplements that I take. But I did not let him know that I take Maca. He did not say anything about the diet except that I should fast for twelve hours before the suregery. Please advise.

Thanks

My doctor’s nurse only told me to stop taking fish oil a week prior to the surgery - this is because fish oil can thin the blood - potentially causing bleeding. I ate plenty of garlic before the surgery, and I was fine.
