Why have I been prescribed pre-operative nutritional drinks?

 

 

 

Recent research suggests that attention to nutrition before your operation leads to a speedier recovery. These drinks have been specially formulated to help relieve thirst, hunger and anxiety sometimes experienced with surgery, helping you to recover more quickly.

 

What are pre-operative nutritional drinks?

 

These drinks are gluten free and lactose free and are suitable for you to take if you are a coeliac or have lactose intolerance.

Pre-op drinks

Having an empty stomach before an anaesthetic is important because it makes it less likely that food or fluid from the stomach can be regurgitated (come back up), which can be dangerous.

Unless you are diabetic, you will be given a special lemon flavoured drink called Nutricia PreOp. It is specially formulated to help your body cope with the stress of surgery. Nutricia PreOp can make you feel more comfortable and less anxious before your operation. It can also make you feel a lot better after your surgery. To get the most benefit it is important that you drink the full amount of Nutricia preOp as directed by your Pre-operative nurse.
