Newbie: LSH in 2 weeks & Pre-Op next week

Hi everyone...

I have my pre-op appt on the 15th...I'm very nervous. I don't know what to expect. I am very happy to have come up on this group as I so need the support. I even let my husband read some of the support topics for partners/spouses. What can I expect at the pre-op?

Re: Newbie: LSH in 2 weeks & Pre-Op next week

My pre-op was pretty uneventful . . . I had blood drawn and they took a urine specimen, then they took my vital signs and my MD went over my past medical history, listened to my heart, lungs, and bowel sounds, palpated my abdomen, and looked at my throat. It took maybe 15 minutes total? I didn't have any questions for him -- my pre-op was with my primary MD and I'd had a consultation the day before with my GYN who is doing the surgery. At my consultation the GYN explained the surgery in detail, went over my recovery time and what to expect, then the OR nurse came in and had me sign the consents and set up my surgery date.

Best of luck to you!!!

My first pre-op was very easy, just blood work, weight and height, blood pressure, talk to the nurse and anistologist (I know my spelling sucks some days). I'm expecting my second on on the 14th to be the same. My surgery is on the 16th so it's coming up soon.

I wish I had been on this site before my surgery. My pre-op was just getting blood drawn. No biggie! Just think...In not too long, you'll be on the other side. I had my LSH on Aug. 2 nd. Take care and don't worry! Hugs! -Oco
