Hi everyone, my Pre-Op appointment has been moved up to this Monday (Feb 12) at St. Joe's Hamilton. Is there anything I need to know? Will I get my date and start Optifast?

Thank you

I'm surprised they didn't give you a date to start when they called you. I guess they will at the appointment.

I was given all my Optifast instructions when I got my surgery date.

I agree with Sweetride... it's unusual not to know your Opti info before your pre-op. Do you know your surgery date yet? It could be that you're getting your pre-op done so you can be on a cancellation list?

Definitely ask... and if they don't know in pre-admission, which I suspect they won't, just head over to your Bariatric centre when you're done there for answers.

Good luck!

Congratulations!

I was at St. Joe's in Toronto, and they told me my surgery date on the phone, and that I'd be picking up my Opti at the end of my pre op meet the team appointment.

Maybe they did that because I live so far away from my surgery center and had to book my flight to get there, though.
