Diet Pills - discontinue before hysterectomy?

I am scheduled for the da Vinci hysterectomy a week from today, January 14th. Does anyone know if I should discontinue taking phentermine prior to my surgery? I failed to ask my doctor this question.

Hi

Give your doctor's office a call and ask. I was told to atop all medication a week prior to surgery.
I just had the DaVinci hysterectomy on 12/19.

Gpod Luck, you'll do great!

Re: Diet Pills - discontinue before hysterectomy?

You need to call ASAP as this is one medication that at times is stopped far longer than a week before surgery. I have even seen doctors ask patients to stop using it a month before surgery and definitely two weeks before. This med can interfere with anesthesia and could cause serious concerns, so talk to your doctor as soon as possible. Also, be sure the anesthesiologist knows exactly how much of it you have taken, how long you have taken it, and the last day you took it. Don't hide anything about this med from either doctor as there can be serious repercussions.
