What do they do at pre-op?

My pre-op is the 23rd. I have to go see my doctor first and then go to the hospital for pre-op there as well. What do they typically do at pre-op both at the doctor and the hospital?

What do they do at pre-op?

at my pre-op, my dr went over the details of my surgery, showed me where my incisions would be, answered all my questions, had me sign papers etc. his office is in the hospital, so i went down the hall and had blood drawn. i didnt meet with anesthesia til the morning of the surgery. you might meet with anesthesia..it all depends on the hospitals policy.

What do they do at pre-op?

I met with an RN and she discussed the surgery with me, gave me a booklet and answered any questions I had. She also filled out all admitting papers, so I do not have to do that on Monday. I also had blood work, and met with another nurse, who gave me an Incentive Spirometry to use before/after surgery.

I will meet with the anesthesiologist the day of surgery.

I had a pre op visit with my gyne. He went over the surgery with me. I then had an appt with my GP, who did the prop op physical (listened to my chest and went over my meds with me). I then had a pre op with the hospital, in which I pre registered and gave blood. I didn't meet the the anethesiologist until the morning of.

Good Luck.

Weeks ago I had EKG and chest Xray~~this last Monday I went to the Gyno, he and I chatted about what was going to go on he gave me scrips for meds so I am all set for after. I went and had blood work done. Friday I go and do pre admit paper work at hospital. All very easy and organized.
