What were your pre op labs ? They just told me and EKG and Chest xray and labs. But didn’t say what specific labs. I’m just curious


Months ago, my surgeon ordered 18 different blood labs, an H Pylori test, barium swallow, chest X-ray, abdominal u/s, EKG, Stress test with echo cardio gram. Oh, and urine specimen.
Yesterday at pre-anesthesia testing I had blood type and Rh screen and antibody screen, and blood drawn for potassium and sodium levels.
My surgery is next Wednesday, June 8.
If you want, I can list the specific labs.

Thank you🤗.
I saw that Walmart has root beer float. I’m going to order it.

I’m not trying to stop the coffee urge, but coffee ice cream is my favorite flavor so I just like that flavor.

The nutritionist from my program made a great recommendation once you are able to drink coffee - use the vanilla or chocolate premier as a Creamer.

Went for my pre-op today, surgery date is June 7th. I'm so ready for this surgery - just nervous about the recovery time.

My surgery is out-patient because of covid. Has anyone here been released the same day? How was your experience?

I take Metropolol. All I know is that my surgeon told me that my dosages (I take Lisinopril/hydrochlorathiazide as well) will be adjusted on an ongoing basis. He also said that he will probably stop the L/H combo and switch to something that is not a diuretic.

My surgery is 6/8 - next wednesday -

Hi, Summer: What time on Wednesday? Right now I'm scheduled for noon but that is subject to change.

I know I take it Tuesday night at my regular time - I take it at 9pm-ish. Wednesday night i'll be overnight in the hospital so I will ask them how they want me to take it.

Just got back from my preop appointments....so many papers. I had my final weigh in and blood work. I also now have prescriptions for after surgery for anything I might need ..ie nausea meds . Hospital gave my surgical body wash and Dr ofc gave me a sample pack (they sell bariatric vitamins) which has some of everything they sell. 10 more days to surgery and for some reason as each day goes by it becomes more and more real.

I did my pre op blood work, got my medical body wash and instructions yesterday. My surgery is on the 7th of June Tuesday. As the days draw closer, my anxiety is starting up. My nerves are on edge.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
