Yes, Covid testing before inpatient surgery appears to be standard practice in Northern California. Not just for my WLS but two of my kids had spine surgery in the last year and they had to get it as well.

Hey y’all! I’m here in Kentucky and ready to get my sleeve on 11/15! I was just curious if any of y’all had to go through the dreadful Covid testing before surgery? My dr hasn’t informed me of anything but I was wondering if anyone out there had to do it?
Thanks !!!
I had to do one when they originally scheduled my sleeve in August. Ended up with hernia repair instead. It was MASSIVE, 1/3 of my stomach was in my chest. My sleeve is now rescheduled for December 14th. So I imagine a few days before I'll have to go get another covid test. The coordinator schedules it.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
