Just saw on my pre-op paperwork several questions regarding whether the patient has been out of the country in the 30 days prior to the surgery. I live in the US but will have been in France, Germany and Switzerland in the 30 days prior to surgery. On a Viking Rhine River cruise plus on our own in Paris and Zurich. My pre-op appointment is the week before surgery. Do these questions focus on specific areas of the world? Might being on vacation in Europe postpone the date of my surgery? I’m scheduled for May 31st.
