I’m going in a couple of days to have a little outpatient surgery. My doctor’s nurse went over all the basic pre-op rules with me, like no nail polish, nothing to eat or drink after midnight, etc. Then she gave me a packet of information that has all the rules printed on the outside. One of the rules is that I can’t wear perfume or cologne that morning; that seems a little strange. Even stranger, I’m supposed to ask whoever is driving me to the hospital not to wear any perfume or cologne either. Why?
I don’t have a problem with skipping the perfume, I’m just curious.
