Pre-Op Appointment Question

Dear Sisters,
Iam having TVH,BSO, A&P Repair on 3-18. The pre-op appointment
has been scheduled for 3-7. In going over the paperwork, I noticed that it said the pre-op tests should not be scheduled for sooner than 1 week prior to surgery. I should tell you that I am
also having surgery on 3-8 for a parathyroid adenoma removal.
The recovery period for this is supposed to be 3-5 days.

Do I need to re-schedule the pre-op appointment for the hysterectomy?

ALso, could anyone tell me about how long the actual TVH, etc. surgery will be?

I am looking forward to putting all this behind me and having a normal life once again!

Pre-Op Appointment Question

Hi, LeAnne! Yes, you probably should have your hyst pre-op appt after your thyroid surg, as the drs want fresh lab results and current exam, etc. You can call your dr office to verify this. Hope you will be feeling fairly well recovered after the thyroid surg before you have your hyst. When it rains, it pours, doesn't it? A hyst usually takes a little over an hour unless they find some problem or there is a complication. Then you'll be in recovery for an hour or two before you go to your hospital room. Best wishes to you for smooth surgeries!

Hi LeAnne

Call that DR soon and get your question answered. Make sure that you also call your Hospital where you are going for the pre-op and they may be able to reschedule your pre-op. I went to the hospital and even made my own appointment for the pre-op so they may can tell you something. The DR office will let you know what you need to do also. God Bless and hope both surgeries go really well.
