Among requested analysis you need to have tests on HIV, Hepatitis B and C done up to one month before surgery. Last testosterone injection should be administrated three weeks before surgery. At least three weeks before surgery you must stop with the intake of, but not strictly limited to, Aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (i.e. Ibuprofen, Advil…) used to minimize clot formation, as well as all vitamin supplements, Omega 3 and similar products and wide array of over-the-counter medications of suspicious origin (Shark Tail, Algae, Gingko, Ginseng, etc.) At last, but not least, food with garlic, onion and strong spices might provoke severe bleeding, therefore one should avoid those too. Still, this is meant to be only general information for patients, you must discuss all other specific issues with our doctors.
