What should be done at home before the surgery--such as limiting eating or drinking for a few hours before coming to the hospital.
What can you expect after the surgery--how much pain will you child be in?
How will the child be prepared for surgery at the hospital? Explaining that
to the youngster can take some of the fear away.
and finally--How long can the parent stay with the child before surgery?
Some parents like to remain with their child all the way up to the time the anesthesia is first given.
