#4 Your Surgical History
Surgeries can leave both internal and external scars, which can affect surgeries that follow. Past surgeries, as well as any issues or complications with the surgery or the anesthesia, should be discussed with your surgeon. Examples include bleeding after surgery, waking up during surgery, nausea and vomiting, or anything that was unusual.
#5 Your Concerns for Surgery
You shouldn’t feel pressured to go into surgery with a surgeon who doesn’t understand your feelings or concerns. If you’re nervous about the surgery or unsure of your results, you should be able to tell your surgeon. During your consultation, you should feel like your surgeon cares about your concerns and be reassured about whatever decision you make.
