Ordinary pre-ops stay in date for up to 6 months Ann - Pete had to have his re-done cos his prostatectomy was overdue - my pre-op for my cataract op was done on 4th December last year so they wouldn't need another unless it was after 4th June I had it done.

If they need other specialist tests to be done within a different timescale then these aren't part of the pre-op process cos they require specialised staff to do them.

It might be different for cardiac surgery Jenny as six months would be too long between some of the tests and surgery, at least everyone I've know of whose had cardiac surgery has had their surgery done within a few weeks of the the pre-admission test. Since Dr DeEath is having surgery at the Brompton I've got a link to their pre-admission test page:  Of course they might find something else wrong and that would delay things....

Atypical Type 2, thin, not insulin resistant, diagnosed March 2007. Very low carb (30 - 50g per day) Paleo diet and exercise - Prandin (Repaglinide) 0.5mg. Aortic Valve Replacement Jan 2014, Osteoporosis, Small airways disease, probable coeliac - Strontium Ranelate 2g/d, Omacor 2g/d, vitamin K2 300mcg/d, Aviticol (vit D3) 20,000 IU every week, Qvar 100 2/day.

Current HbA1c 33 Current total cholesterol 7, HDL 3.5, LDL 3.2, triglycerides 0.4

Maybe it's hospital based. My surgery was meant to be done within 2 weeks after the pre-op too.
T2 and PCOS. Just had large serous adenofibroma removed with ovary and fallopian tube. Bp is now normal!

Novorapid, levemir, trulicity, metformin.

Normally the pre-op is done a week or two before surgery so it's a good sign you have been given your pre-op appointment date !

Yes, its Monday 12th. No idea how long it is valid for if everything is OK. Once I needed a second minor op four months after the first and they said there was no need for another pre-op. Another hospital delayed an op for a couple of months (again not major) and I had to do the whole pro-op again! So who knows - I suspect it can be down to individual hospitals/departments and staff. Sometimes I think it is redone to buy time!
T1 for over 50 years.  MDI on Porcine insulin.  Lisinopril and Atorvastatin.
