Help! I am going tomorrow afternoon for my pre-op testing, and my weight loss surgery is scheduled for 9/14. I have no idea how many or what types of test they need to do at this appointment, but they said to expect to be there roughly 3 hrs.
I know they will do blood work, but I haven’t been able to get a hold of anyone at the lab so I’m not sure if I need to fast for that testing or not. My appointment is at 1pm tomorrow. I’m sure I’ll be pretty hungry by then.
I’m also not sure if I should take my normal meds for blood persure and GERD either. Please let me know what I should do.
Also, in your experience, what are all the tests that they typically perform in this appointment? Three hours seems like a long time.
