Pre-Op appt. tomorrow. What did you ask?

Hello ladies!
I hope everyone is well.
Tomorrow is my pre-op appt and although I have a list of questions, some from the pre-op checklist from this site, I was wondering what you all asked or will ask?
I am scheduled on November 9th (one week to go..YIKES) to have a TVH. I am planning to keep my ovaries.
I just want to get an idea of what you all plan to or did ask so I can see if there is anything that I have forgotten or didnt think of.
Thank you!

Re: Pre-Op appt. tomorrow. What did you ask?

Hi Steelersfan,
I asked about the length of the operation, so family would know how much time to spend at the hospital. My preop was actually with the hospital staff who had a lot of questions regarding medications, allergies, health issues etc so it was very important to have a list of current meds and their strengths, all allergies to food and other things which affect the anesthesia, and who gave me a list of dos and don'ts before surgery like what medications not to take, when to stop them etc. This is potentially life-saving stuff so I'm not sure if your preop is with your surgeon or the hospital, so I'm sorry if I'm giving you info that you don't need. I had a lot of questions as to what to bring to the hospital (very little) what to leave home (all jewelry) and things of that nature.
Wishing you the best for your impending surgery,
