Ask your surgeon because the hospital may supply you with one as well, so you'll have 2, awesome! The order my doc gave to the hospital says place binder on patient in pre-op

hey...definitely good to know! When I saw that it helps pain, I wanted to make sure I have one. If they give me an extra, that would be good as well, but considering not being able to bathe for couple of days, I will probably want a clean one.

Well, I haven't talked to my surgeon's office yet, so it's not official, but I saw my approved pre-auth on my insurance portal and it's dated for 1/17/19 so I think I have a date!

Should be starting my pre-op diet right after New Year's if I'm right. Which is nice, I won't be on the diet over my birthday lol.

Talked with my insurance and they said I was approved with a scheduled surgery date of January 2, 2019. I chuckled a little bit when the insurance told me that. Because my final decision appointment is January 3rd with the surgeon and nutritionist.

I just talked to my surgeon's office and they told me the pre-auth date is just a placeholder. Maybe yours is too?

(of course mine may be accurate because that's the earliest I can do it since they require payment two weeks in advance and I can't pay until I have next year's FSA)
