Acute Appendicitis - Preparing for surgery

​Before Surgery

The surgeon will examine your child and explain the operation. Your child will need to have an empty stomach before the surgery can be done. No food or drinks are allowed for at least 6 hours before surgery as he may vomit during induction of anaesthesia. A drip is inserted for medications and fluids to prevent dehydration. The doctors and nurses will prepare your child for the surgery. The child will be brought on a trolley to the Operating Theatre. A parent/guardian is encouraged to accompany the child to the Operating Theatre. An anaesthetist will give the child medication to ensure he sleeps throughout the operation.
