What do they do at a Pre-Op?

At the dr, he will answer all your questions. I brought my DH so he would know what to expect. The dr will just listen to your heart and lungs.

At the hospital, they will ask all sorts of questions. And answer all your questions. They will tell you what to do pre surgery and what to expect post surgery. They will take your blood pressure, take blood for tests, and maybe an EKG and chest XRay. They were all very nice and supportive at my hospital. Hope you have a similar experience.

Good luck and lots of hugs.

I brought a notebook with all my questions written down. I didn't want to forget anything. My doctor is so awesome. We sat in his office for quite a long time and he patiently answered all my questions.
