Re: How long will preop appts last??

My pre op appointment with my doc was an exam and Q & A.

Then she scheduled me (the following week ) for my pre op AT the hospital which included, the business office (insurance, address, etc.), chest x-rays, EKG, blood work & pregnancy test. That took roughly 1 1/2 - 2 hours.

What I found really helpful was my mom works in ICU and she took me to meet the anesthesiologist and many of the surgical staff. They showed me around and explained what they would do & showed me the pre op room and recovery area. We joked around a bit and I apologized up front for any foul language I may spew in recovery. lol. That visit with them helped tremendously with my nervousness.

I had no idea a pre-op could take so long? Why is this?

Pre-op with Doc took 2 hours... had ultra sound and exam at the time plus Q and A.
Pre-op at Hosp also took about 2 hours... Filled out paperwork, blood test, and another Q and A....
So about 4 hours total for me.

Business office (pre-registration), chest x-rays, EKG, blood work & pregnancy test. Each one is a different department in the hospital (at least in my hospital). Its........sign in, wait, get it done, rinse & repeat until all tests are finished. You aren't the only person having those things done for one reason or another, so you have to wait until they get to you.

Try not to be scared.

Does your doc think cancer might be a problem. My doc did a C125? blood work before she'd even schedule surgery since there was a cyst on my ovary (per the ultrasound). It came back negative for ovarian cancer and I had surgery the following week.
