    When I went for my pre op assesment, they weighed me, talked about the op and what would happen, took some blood and a MRSA swab, was only at Chichester about an hour max. Hope that helps.

    Hi all, I have nit been told about ant pre op assessment!! I had my consultation with guy last Friday we talked about my eating habits, and guy recommended I have the band, we then went through the procedure of the op, I then went to see the dietician where pre and post op food was talked about. I then received a call giving me a date fir the op… Perhaps when I receive any paperwork it will mention a pre op assessment.

    Cheers

    Hi John pre op assessment is a common thing with any operation they just do a final check of Bp bloods mrsa swab etc nothing to worry about it is routine .

    Hi John, my pre op was carried out by the hospital and organised by them rather than streamline and I was informed about it via a letter with all my admission/fasting instructions for the operation, it came direct from the hospital so I am sureyou will hear soon. I bet you’re counting down the days now.
