    By now you should have undergone various tests etc, (well at least that's what happens here in the UK) .... for me these various tests and appointments included:

    1. See your GP who will arrange for you to have a scan.
    2. Undergoing a scan.
    3. CT scan.
    4. Blood tests
    5. endoscopy and colonoscopy: I had an injection before these were done and I hardly realised they were undertaking it ....
    6. A few days prior to op - appointment at hospital to check your heart etc.,
    7. On the day: checked in by someone; nurses take you to where you can change; anesthetist has quick chat: someone else had a chat and filled a form in but I can't remember who or what that was about.
    8. You go down for your op when after a cheery chat with operating staff you are suddenly asleep.
    9. When you awake in the recovery room you're taken to the ward: I was there until 5pm that same day.

    I hope this helps. On the day there seemed to be no time to worry about the impending op as I was seen by so many people (or so it seemed).

    Sending you very best wishes.
