I was just wondering how long after having the pre-op assessment did it take to have your laparoscopy? I'm with a different hospital for this lap and so far they've only given me a date for my pre-op and not my surgery. The last hospital I was with did this the other way round - they gave me the op date first, then the pre-op date. I've asked the hospital if they could give me a date for my surgery and they said no, it depends on waiting lists.... Helpful! It can't be more than a few weeks can it?
