*Chlorhexidine gluconate is an ingredient in Hibiclens and Exidine. A sample will be given to you during the Back in Action class. Most drug stores carry the brand name Hibiclens.

2. It is okay to continue taking aspirin before my surgery.

3. I should cough, deep breathe and do frequent ankle pumps after my surgery. I will be asked to get out of bed the day of my surgery. Even if I go home the day of surgery, walking and expanding my lungs (occasional deep breathe and cough) will prevent complications.
