Finding out surgery time the day before?

Recommended Posts

Hi girls

As a newbie to all this I was wondering if anyone could tell me why my surgeon can't tell me what time my surgery will be on the day until the day before?  I'm not bothered at all, I'm just curious as to how it works.

It isn't up to the Surgeon. It is up to the hospital because they need to coordinate the times the operating theatres and anaesthetist will be available as well as adequate nurses for postop care. I knew my Surgery would be in the afternoon of a particular day because the schedule is divided into "morning" and "afternoon" but that was it.
