Hello, so I eventually had my pre op on the 18th August. The surgeon told me I should have had my operation the December before as I was put on a 3 month wait. That was 13 months ago! I’m wondering how long people have had to wait once they have had their pre op? Oh it’s a hip replacement I’m waiting for. I’ve had the necessary equipment delivered from the hospital for after the operation. Many thanks!

    Hi @Newyear

    When I've had surgeries if you've not had surgery within three months they have to redo the pre op tests to be in the safe side so hopefully soon.
