Hey everyone,

just wondering how long was the wait at THW from your psych app to you surgeon and then for a surgery date.

You should be able to see the surgeon within 2 weeks of the psych appt, they have a meeting about you with the whole team for the final "green light"; then the surgeon appt and surgery is generally 4-6weeks after that, it just depends on the booking times.

I got a cancellation, so mine was just a couple of days later, but I think you usually will get a call to set an appointment with the surgeon within 2 weeks of your last appointment. As for how quick you get in, it just depends how flexible your schedule is.

Hi Kathy
Should be in about 2 weeks. Depending which group of surgeons are doing the clinic will depend when you get your surgery date. With a TWH surgeon you will leave with your date. The other 2 sites the surgeon's office will call. St Mikes has a longer wait time.

Thanks for the feedback!
I'm currently in school and am trying to get it done around the christmas break so that I won't have to take to much time away from school. I already let everyone whom I've spoken to know including the mgr of the program at TWH(who might I say is very kind and understanding) but of course the doesn't guarantee anything. Hopefully it works that way...fingers crossed!!
