    Hi everyone! This is the first time I've posted on the General Healther Board. I'm usually on the FMS/CFS board, and see someone of those members are on this board also.

    I have a question and am hoping that someone here can answer. I'm having surgery on Monday for Endometriosis. I was wondering what they are looking for in the blood work that is ordered for pre-admission testing.

    Is it anything specific or just a general work up to make sure everything is normal? I didn't really have a chance to talk to the nurse about this and was just curious.

    Thanks for the help,

    Thanks guys. I should of asked my doc, but sometimes you get so caught up in other conversations it slips your mind. Thanks again for the info.
