Re: Pre Op only 4 days before Surgery!

WELLLLLLLL , I had to change my surgery date... because it Didn't fit with the DH's work schedule... moved it back to November 1 from Oct 24th.... not thrilled, but I know how hard he works and while he said he could have tried to make it work on the 24th (which is by the way the date HE originally chose!) it would be better if I could change the date..... My boss was thrilled too.... (another co worker is having a hysterectomy on the 25th ) gives her one l more week to find subs... Not sure how I feel about it.... guess other than the massive pain I am in it really doesn't matter, just a bit disappointed....

Re: Pre Op only 4 days before Surgery!

I am 7 days post lavh and I had my pre op four days prior also. The only thing that sucked about that is I had to wait till that four days before to ask any questions I had before. But I think that atleast the positive side is you won't have to wait a long time after pre op cuz once you get that done you are basically ready for surgery in your own mind. Atleast I was.

Re: Pre Op only 4 days before Surgery!

My surgery is the 20th.

My pre-op physical is the 18th. I was told it had to be no more than a week before surgery. I don't have any clue what they plan to do at that appt.

I have a pre-op "talk" appointment with the GYN tomorrow.

Re: Pre Op only 4 days before Surgery!

At my pre-op, besides hospital paper work, they did blood work and an EKG. They also reviewed with me my surgery, that I was going to have a hysterectomy. They also reviewed with me generic procedures of where to come on surgery day, that I needed someone to come get me when they released me several days later, etc.

I am guessing your pre-op will be similar.

Good luck..

Re: Pre Op only 4 days before Surgery!

my pre-op is 10/20th and surgery is 10/27

i went into my primary TODAY for some baseline bloodwork & EKG (but couldn't get an apptn for a full physical.)

i think another round of bloodwork will be drawn on the day of pre-op.

i don't even have a list of questions to ask my doctor yet... i've been skimming the board so much i'm not sure what else i'm forgetting that i need to know! lol

Re: Pre Op only 4 days before Surgery!

Hello ladies pre-op and registration went fine one more step and its almost over. I have been feeling crazy lately but today made it so much better I feel so much relief. The doctor answered all my questions even showed me a diagram with a pointer, Lol. He made me feel so at ease. I'm losing everything except my ovaries he said they are good and the only way he would take them is if he's sees something when he goes in. So Oct. 14th @ 6am is my check in I've had a EKG, CXR, urine speciman and blood drawn can't wait till its over but I can say right here right now I am in better spirits about it. Thanks for all the care and concern, good luck and see you ladies in post-op.
