I finished all my pre op testing a month ago and got approved. I don't go to my Pre Op appointment till Dec 13th. So who knows when my surgery date will be. My Doctor is so busy. I started everything back in June of this year.

That’s weird that you already had your pre-op appointment a month ago but no surgery date scheduled. Most of the time the surgery date gets scheduled first then the pre-op appointment gets scheduled. I knew when my surgery date 4 months prior which was scheduled on 11/01/2021. The end of September I was given my pre-op appointment 2 weeks before my surgery date. My pre-op and surgery appointments were done by the scheduling department at the hospital I was having my surgery done. What’s concerning is that is you stated your doctor is so busy. So if he is so busy did his office schedule your pre-op appointment or did the hospital? Can you call your doctor’s office and talk with one of the staff about your surgery to see what is happening. You really need to start getting some answers of when your surgery is happening. Hang in there.

I agree with lifestyle changer. I would call and make sure you are not already on their surgery schedule. Usually the pre op appointment is a short time before surgery.

Hello Ellinnet!

I’m checking in to see if you’re OK. I’m curious to know if you have been able to contact your doctor’s office regarding information if my surgery is scheduled or not. If your surgery has not been scheduled the question you need to ask the staff should be the following or something like it.

Please explain why I’m scheduled for my Pre-op appointment on 12/13 if no surgery date has been scheduled?

Wishing you the best and hope you get your answers. My thoughts and prayers are with you.🙏🙏🙏

My surgeon is super busy as well. I started with the initial consultation mid May and finished my pre op testing beginning of Sept. I was not able to get my pre-pre-op appointment till mid Nov. Last week I received a surgery date for mid Jan. Trying to be patient but am excited to see the light at the end of the tunnel!

I’m so glad things are moving in the right direction for you. I didn’t want to see you hanging without any answers. Sending my thoughts and prayers that you stay healthy for your upcoming surgery.🙏🙏🙏
