    I asked about admission times yesterday and was told that whatever it is, expect to wait up to 6 hours!

    I had 11am and went down at 1, wasn’t too bad as you have nurses etc constantly coming in which broke the time up abit. Good luck with the op xx

    Yes my admission time was 11am. i went down at 2.30pm. They only had 7 surgeries that day which was said to be a quiet day, but they were very apologetic about the delay.
    I went down at 2.30pm, back at 3.30pm in my room and discharged at 7pm. Could have gone maybe an hour or so earlier but my blood pressure was low and i was dizzy. Wasn’t too bad at all really. Take a few magazines with you to read whilst your waiting and you have a tv in your room so keeps you occupied. I did consider having a little snooze but the nurses were bobbing in every half hour or so so not much chance of that haha

    Just a heads up. My admission time was 11am last Monday and I didn’t actually go down until 5:50pm which is over the 6 hours. Apparently there was an issue and my surgeon was held up in surgery. I got back to my room around 7pm and was the last to leave the hospital at 11pm! So be prepared to be waiting girls. I was extremely dehydrated and starving as I hadn’t eaten since 10:30pm the night before xx

    Just a quick question but what does your chaperone do are they allowed to wait in your room while you’re in surgery?
