If you decide to have a general anaesthetic, we will ask you not to eat for six hours before we take you to the operating theatre, although you may drink sops of water up to two hours before the operation. Prior to surgery, an anaesthetist will speak to you and examine you on the ward. The nursing staff will give you eye drops to enlarge your pupil. When you arrive in the operating theatre’s anaesthetic room, the anaesthetist will monitor your heart rate, breathing, blood oxygen and blood pressure while you are under the anaesthetic. You may feel tired and sleepy for about six to 12 hours following your surgery.
