March 16, 2009 -- Question: What can I expect the night before prostate surgery?

Answer: The night before your operation is typically a good time to spend with family and be sure to get a good night's rest. You will typically be on a liquid diet and because of anesthesia precautions, you should not eat or drink anything after midnight just before your operation.
