Mag Citrate 24 hours before surgery??

Hi Ladies!

My doctor told me that I should drink the Mag Citrate a full 24 hours before my surgery. From what I've read in other posts, most people are not instructed to take it until after lunch or evening before surgery.

My surgery is scheduled for 8:30am. So I will be taking the tincture 8:30 the day before.. does this seem right? I will need to take that day off of work I suppose! argh.

Just wondering if anyone else was told 24 hours?

Re: Mag Citrate 24 hours before surgery??

I actually drank mine 2 nights before surgery and then had to be on a liquid diet the day before and then nothing after midnight the night before. Doctors preferences really vary with this.

I took the day before surgery off but I wouldn't have needed it for the "potty" reason because the mag didn't do much. I took the day off because I knew I would be weepy and unable to focus.

Best wishes on your surgery and recovery!
