With so many surgeries being postponed in March and probably April, are the doctors giving you new dates, if so how long out? A month? Or are they just saying," not now"?

My surgical coordinator told me it’s week to week. However, she said that more than likely it will be a May to June situation. I was scheduled for April 9 and clearly that’s not happening. S

I'm scheduled for mid May, haven't heard of changes yet. With the current situation they will need to keep all available beds and ventilators open I'm guessing until we see the curve going down.

It is extremely frustrating to be told we have to wait. I do pray you are able to get re scheduled as quickly as is possible.

I pray you and everyone stay healthy and safe from the virus.

I haven’t been given a date as of yet, but my advocate assured me to that they were still booking appointments and it was business as usual. If everything goes accordingly, I’ll be scheduled for early May or sooner. Hopefully this pandemic has subsided and we all can proceed.

This past Monday, I was given a surgery date of April 23rd. I was told several times that most of the procedures scheduled in mid to late March by my surgeon will have to be moved. I am "self-pay" so I decided to pre-pay for everything now so that my April 23 slot is locked and does not get bumped by someone who was scheduled in March.

However, the "lock" is not a 100% sure thing, if the CORVID-19 situation in my area starts to get out of control, my surgery date will get reschedule also. As of today there are only a couple of cases confirmed so I am hoping for the best that the numbers stay low for the next 4 weeks.

I was fortunate enough, that they had a cancellation. Now im scheduled for March 26. Instead of april 2nd! I would defiantly call your surgeon and see if they have had any cancellations.
