    hi Mary

    at my pre op they weigh you, do blood pressure check, asked a few questions about you and regarding pain relief and what yiu can take , also blood were taken incase they need to do blood transfusion in theatre , this is rare so dont worry.

    it's all pretty low key and nothing to worry about hun. I want there long but I'm in UK so may ge different.

    I miss Canada 🇨🇦💖
