Imagine my shock when I got a call from the pre-admission RN who told me I am scheduled for surgery Monday at 1:00! My doctor's office called while I was in the midst of the interview that is conducted in advance of surgery. My Thursday will be taken up by the PET scan at 8:00, then pre-op testing starting at 1:15. Chest x-ray, EKG, some blood work for sure, discussion with anesthesiologist, instructions to prevent MRSA, etc. etc. etc.
If everything goes as planned, I will spend just one night in the hospital Haven't done that since 10/6/80!
Sooner is better, less time to stress over all this.
