Pre-op And Tour For Surgery

/ 6 August 2004

Today I went to Gillette Children’s for the Pre-op Appointment and Tour. The pre-op took place in the main surgery area of Gillette (which is one level below the rest of the hospital). The nurse told me all about what will happen on Tuesday (which is when the surgery will happen). Then we went up to the normal waiting room to wait until the surgery tour giude arrived. Then she took us completly though the inpatiant zone. She also explained the below pain scale.

Then she took us to the room where I would be staying. After that she took us to a table to explain the rest.
