    they should tell you all this info at your pre assessment on 14th April,i would assume that 24th June is your operation date but the nurses will tell you this for sure at the pre op....i would ask about your hol,we all recover differently,i am 9 weeks post op and i feel well enough to travel but you would have to check with gp and insurance company cos you will be higher risk of a DVT cos you will be 8 weeks post op..

    Hi, your probly best ringing the number on your letter, its normally the surgeons secretary who deals with all the appointments and they'll be able to answer your queries hun..if your in doubt about your hols 8wks after it may be worthwhile asking for a telephone consult with the surgeon for advice..good luck hun xx
