My pre-op was a voice mail. So not personal!
I did not receive any thing to calm my nerves before I was asked to walk to the operating room. I told the nurse I was scared. She Said "well there is nothing I can do about that". Very comforting words.
When I got on the table face down, my gown was opened revealing my entire backside before I was asleep. I was humiliated. The nurse wrenched my neck to the left even after I told her i had a bad neck. I couldn't move it for days.
The first thing I saw when she wrenched my neck was a big needle. That's what i remember before I went to sleep. On all of my paperwork I wrote that I could not have sugar. I was offered white crackers, gatorade, and apple juice.
Good thing I brought my own. I have had four surgeries and this experience was not professional or caring. My husband had outpatient surgery at Piedmont hospital.
It was a ver good experience for me. Next time I will go there.
