Dr. Hidalgo will have sent you the preop diet and two weeks before surgery you will start the preop diet process.  There is more info on the preop diet here.

On the day of surgery you will come to the hospital a few hours prior to surgery.  All of the tests will be run and Dr. Hidalgo and the surgical team will go over everything with you.  You will meet your anesthesiologist as well.
