  • Tests that you may need before surgery
  • How long it’ll take to get back to normal
  • What support is available

There’s a cooling-off period for two weeks after your appointment. This gives you time to make sure you want to proceed with surgery.

Before you go ahead with the operation, you may need to have a pre-operative assessment.
