I know this is a bit of a hard one to answer - as some hospitals are quicker, some waiting lists are shorter, etc!
But I was just wondering how far in advance people found out a date for their lap?
E.g. did you get a letter 2 weeks before, a few months before, etc?
My work are hugely supportive of time off for mental and physical well-being but I want to be able to give them an idea of how short notice it all might be for recovery time off.
