    Hello,
    So it’s my op day tomorrow! Feeling excited
    But what should I expect on the day once I arrive at the hospital?
    If my admission time is 7:30 , what time am I likely to be out of the hospital?

    I stayed overnight cos I was having a lift too. By the time I’d got settled after everyone had been in taking notes, drawing me and discussing anaesthetic, I was heading to the op room. 2hrs after admission and felt like minutes.

    I hardly got to properly settle! It all went faster then expected when I went! My admission time was 12, I got taken to my room, given my gown and a urine pot so they can do pregnancy test. Within an hour and half I’d spoken to the nurse, anethitist and surgeon to mark me up. I went down for surgery at 2pm was back up for 3:15, then 3 hours of checking obs, having some food and drink, doing a wee and they can discharge you if all is okay! I imagine if your time is early morning you won’t be waiting long at all
    I was patient 6/9 of the day
