Who knows. This might be a scheduling mess.

So far my April 23rd date is holding, however for how long I think the inevitable is coming. I am beginning to loose hope that I will get a call next week about a reschedule. I am self-pay and opted to pre-pay everything now and not wait till a week before. Doing so I was told may provide some scheduling "favor" and put me near the top when the schedule is re-created.I'm thinking that's not going to happen either.

Hi it’s.time. My surgery was cancelled and it will be TBD. It was schedule for April 9 and let’s say your surgery is set for 4-16 and they resume surgery, yours would be pushed back and the March folks will get surgery . The coordinator also told me that everyone will be 2 weeks behind. If things resolve I might have my surgery in May or June. It also all depends if people want to wait it out. Who knows. This might be a scheduling mess.

Yes, this makes perfect sense. And yes, some people may drop out. My guess is nothing is going to happen for at least 30-45 days then they would take the March people first. This is my third time going through this. 10 years ago I was scheduled and was cancelled because I had breast cancer. The second time I was a month from surgery and the doctor stopped accepting the insurance so I'm not surprised this happened. I could say it's not meant to be, but I'm NOT going to say that and will wait some more. grrrrr

Some updates that Will definitely delay surgery for me. Our governor Coumo reports that this health crisis will go on for months. Seems like there is no way on earth I’ll have surgery in May or June. I am looking at perhaps July. I began my journey in July 2019. I am hoping we all stay safe and healthy. Wishing positive vibes to you all. Xoxoxo

Just got my APPROVAL yesterday. So everything seems officially OFFICIAL!

It's MY time!

That's great, hopefully there won't be any delays or too long of a delay!

My hospital has cancelled all elective surgeries until May 1st but they may extend it. Looks like I’ll be having surgery in July or August. I hope we are all safe, that’s top priority. My surgery can wait.
