As part of the assessment process you may need to have some tests before your operation can go ahead. These may include routine tests such as a covid test and MRSA screen. These are simple swab tests that you will do at home and put in the post. It is important that these tests are done on the day that you are asked to do them.

You will be required to attend the hospital for consultation with the Urologist. The initial consultation may be on video, but however they are arranged it is vital that you do not miss them. Consultations are important for the medical team to carry out a proper assessment and also for you to ask any questions and understand the procedure in detail.
- Time off work
Almost all surgical procedures will require you to take some time off work. The time off work will depend on the type of surgery that you are having and the nature of your work. For example, if you have a job that involves a lot of heavy lifting you may be advised to take some more time off work than someone with a sedentary job. The type of operation you are having may also be a factor in the time needed off work. Your Urologist will advise you on the likely time needed. Of course, this will also depend on the speed of your recovery and this can vary from patient to patient.
