Pre-op physical - what to expect?

I'm clearly feeling some anxiety, so please bear with me! I have my pre-op physical scheduled for tomorrow (my surgery is July 1). I opted to have the physical done at my family doctor's office as my PS is about an hour away. I'm not sure exactly what to expect or what type of tests the PS ordered. Did anyone have to do a stress test? I saw that on my paperwork and thought it seemed unnecessary, but I don't know if I'll have to do one. Also, do I need to fast for my bloodwork? I just need this all to be over because it would be nice to think about something else for once!

My pre-op was with my GP and I had to do a ECG and blood work. Everything came back ok and I got the green light for my TT next Tuesday. Good luck with yours.

Forget it - I already had it. I had no idea how long it would take for my discussion to post! The physical was really easy. No bloodwork or labs of any kind. She took vitals, asked me some questions, and sent me on my way. I really wish I hadn't wasted so much anxiety on that!
