How soon before surgery is pre-op scheduled?

When does the pre-op appointment get scheduled? My surgery is March 6th. I am not sure if I should start bugging them yet? I am starting to get anxious!

Also, what do the tests involve?

Re: How soon before surgery is pre-op scheduled?

My surgery is March 13th and I'm going Friday for my pre-op with the hospital. Call your doctor's office and find out. Have you received any paperwork for the hospital that they want you to fill out and bring with you?
Give them a call and find out.
Good luck.

They should call you in a few days to set that up and when I had mine they only took about 4 tubes of blood. It all depends on your health and what your dr needs.

Hmm... It is usually within a few days of the actual surgery date. If you have your surgery date but no PRE OP date, call your doctor's office back and have them look into that for you. It sounds like something was overlooked.

Good luck!!!

Re: How soon before surgery is pre-op scheduled?

my surgery was sched. For jan.18 and I saw my doc. Jan 4 for his pre op interview. Then on jan. 11 I had the pre op with hospital and had to go back that following tues. For a certain type of blood draw my doc wanted that could only b done within 48 hours of surgery. So u should b scheduled soon.now that I think about it I have seen my doc every week since jan.4. Im 5 weeks post op this week and he has scheduled to see me every week. this is the only week I dont see him. He has definitely made sure im recovering smoothly.

I had done my 2 1/2 weeks prior, which I am glad I did because I had to wait for an appointment with my PC and then wait for the results to get to him and even then, the hospital neglected to fax him my ekg results, which then took an extra day. I am all set to go on the 27th.
