How long op after pre op, in staffs?

Got my pre op app. First one on 27th October.

How long approx will op be afterwards?

Doing my mum a supra birthday party that's costing me over 300 quid on 20th November, for been so supportive . so will it clash?

gutted if so. I know op is more important just would of loved to attend her do thats costing a lot of pennies

thanks in advance

I had a pre-op in January and had my surgery in August last year. So it was just over 7 months for me! Just depends how busy the waiting list is and if your are a priority or not!

Last year I had my pre op then 2 or 3 days later had my surgery! This time they told me it will be no more than 3 months!

Hope you get your date soon.
