Changing further out should not be a huge issue for your surgeon.

Check with your insurance if there is an expiration date on approval.

Good Luck,

I was wondering if anyone ever had to change surgery date...did they make you wait longer...is there a deadline on having surgery.

Really depends on the program. Best to ask them directly

That's not unreasonable. It is a drastic action and you really need to be sure.

My advice is to figure out which parts scare you and if they can be worked on but only do what you are comfortable with ♥️

Yes, they postponed mine twice, First it was scheduled last February and the Doctor cancelled it a week before. NO REASON GIVEN. Then it was rescheduled for April and well Covid happened, so they put it on hold. I finally got to do it June 5th on my third date. Really was better for me in the long run but there was a 15 month wait between my first appointment and surgery. Also I was past my window my insurance company gave me, but UCSF called them and they gave me an extension.
