Final Decision appointment



Recommended Posts

Tomorrow is my final decision appointment. It is with my surgeon and nutritionist. Anybody have a clue what this appointment is? I know I have been approved by the insurance already. Everything is done. Pre op assessment is done.

I didn't have one....but I meet w/ the surgeon next week to ask any "final" questions and have my nutrition class and all of that jazz. So maybe that is what your appointment is similar to.

I have the same appointment tomorrow. I know I'm supposed to learn my exact surgery date, but I was told I'll be there for three hours and will also meet with a nutritionist. Let us know what happened at your appointment when you can!

During my final appointment we discussed the pre-op diet, as well as what to eat post-op. They also checked to make sure that I had the correct type of Protein and Vitamins. We also talked about specifics of surgery day (when to arrive at the hospital, time of surgery, where to park, etc.). They also did blood work and a chest x-ray. I was told that it would be 2-3 hours, but it only took an hour and a half or so.

I was there 40 minutes tops. Talked with surgeon then the scheduler. Then I had an appointment scheduled for 14 days out from where I will be talking with nutritionist and physician assistant. Then next day surgery
