Pre-Op Medical Tests (almost) Done
Two days ago I had a phone interview with the pre-admission clinic to get the details of what is going to happen on the surgery day (all of which I already knew since I have been through this before). And then today I had a pre-op physical and blood work done. The clinic here at school would not perform an EKG because people over 50 and those who medically need an EKG can get one. So now I have to call my surgeons office, ask if I really need an EKG (and if so why). I can always get this done when I am at home but this is putting it less than a week before the surgery. The secretary made it very clear that she wanted the stuff ASAP, but the EKG thing is not going to happen in this fashion. I guess I'll wait until Tuesday to see if I need to still get an EKG, why I need to get an EKG, and then actually book an EKG if the surgeon still insists on getting an EKG.
