The pre-pre-pre op

Turns out that the appointment I had today was only the pre-pre-pre op.

Today's pre-op was with my Doctor, who hooked me up to the EKG, told me I was having a heart attack, and then let me go.

Monday, I have a pre-op with the surgeon, a blood test, and a chest xray.

Wednesday, I have a pre-op with the pre-op nurse to... ok, I don't know. I can't imagine what else can pre-op the op.

I get that preparation is key to a successful procedure and all that but can't there be one pre-op appointment, in one place, that takes care of everything?

Yep, this is much more efficient than a single-payer, government run, healthcare system. NOT.

Fortunately, mine was one appointment for everything. But I did have a separate one with the surgeon, you know the one where he told me worst case they would sever my sciatic nerve and then I'd have drop foot for the rest of my life. That was my favorite.
