Next week I have to have a small out patient procedure done ( i had a cyst that became very infected on my chest ( under my boob lol) ... I had it taken out in an office ( he just numbed it ) ..... well anywasy it didnt close right and so now he thinks he must of missed a piece of the "cell wall" and since I had such a hard time last time ( i had to keep packing it and it didnt close all the way) ... he is going to take me into the OR , put me under general anestia ( sp) and then sew it up ...
Well, today they called to tell me the dos and donts before the procedure , like not eating or drinking after midnight, no makeup or nail polish, and they said no jewelry -- which i would be ok with EXCEPT - I cannot get my wedding rings off !
In the last couple of years I have gained weight ( from a hormone problem, that I just started taking medication for ) so now my fingers are alot bigger than when we got married ... well they are completely stuck to where I have tried everything to get them off ( even before this occasion) - I have tried soap, lotion, string - everything !
so my question is , WHY am I unable to wear jewelry , at first i thought in case it is stolen or something they couldnt be held responsible ( since they said no valuables) , and my grandma told me that when she had a similar thing done ( but in another place) they just covered her rings with a bandaid ...
Or could it have to do with something medical ?

In many cases hospitals don't want you to wear jewelery in case of theft or loss. If you go under and the rings go missing, then the hospital has to worry about finding a thief. It just makes it easier for them .

The metal can interfere with the equipment. They can make a small cut in your finger to remove the ring.
