Dont worry about the psych appointment. Depending on your history ie past depression they will ask about it, what support/treatment etc... How are yoou now. I found it a relaxed appointment. At the end he told me his thoughts that I was good to go. If they feel you have issues that need addresing they will help you. they want to to succeed.

Psych is the last appointment, They will them send your file to Rounds on the Thursday then you will get your appointment with the surgeon, Wont be long know.

My only real issue with it was that the doctor doing it wanted to talk to my current psychiatrist who I totally don't get along with and basically don't communicate with so I was obviously nervous about that. I basically just rely on him to write prescriptions. Obviously all was well though because I got approved!

Don't worry too much!
