Meal Before Surgery
An indulgent meal the night before surgery will not negatively affect the outcome, however it is important to not drink any alcohol before the procedure. Obviously eating a healthy, balanced meal would be best, but there is no problem with enjoying your last meal before the surgery as long as you are following all of your pre-operative instructions.

Congratulations on all of your hard work. I would avoid the alcohol prior to surgery, but other than that you should be fine. A little extra protein may be a good choice. Enjoy!
