  • i had surgery last summer and i was put out completely. they had my dh wait in the waiting room while i was being prepped for surgery. they called him in about 10 minutes before i went in the OR. Then he was waiting in the recoving room when I woke up. I highly doubt they will let your dh in the room during the surgery. you will be so out of it, it won't even bother you. gl

  • He WONT be allowed in an operating room because of insurance regulations. Hubby could see something to sue over. But if it's just the Dr's office, he will probably be allowed.

  • I would think not, but it may depend on the doctor and the facility.

  • All you can do is ask. But the surgery center would be lax if they let him and then the hubby sued over something he saw.
