I had bloodwork and they took my vitals bp, pulse, temp, no xrays or ekg but i dont smoke or drink so i guess they figured that i was in pretty good shape as far as lungs and heart. I think it depends on the dr whatever they want is what they do.
Relax and go with the flow it will be a breeze.
I had blood work, chest x-ray, ekg, and had to talk to the antithesiologist (sorry for the bad spelling). I also don't drink nor smoke...they told me this was what they do to everyone. The x-ray is to make sure your lungs are clear and you have no sign of TB or pneumonia (that's what they told me).
I was told my pre op would take 3 to 4 hours I'm having a lavh on july 20 I don't drink don't smoke 33 years old a now scared to death that others took 20 minutes...lol (laughing) I should have known I'd find something else to stress over.....
Shannon, fear not I was in the hospital for HOURS for my pre-op. I waited around a crowded waiting area for them to call my name, about 2 hours to be exact, registered and was sent upstairs to wait in another waiting room. Peed in a cup, got my BP taken, talked to a nurse, and had blood taken. I didn't have to get the EKG or chest xray because I had a surgical procedure the month before and they still had all that on file.
I had to be there around 4 hours from start to finish.
So relax, pre-op is the easy part, just takes a lot of sitting around and waiting. LOL
