So I got to the hospital before 9 am for my appointment, tried to book in, but my name wasn`t on the list. So I told them I had been telephoned on Thursday to come today as my op is next week. So off they went to ring around , and came back with the list which was blank at 9am where my name should have been! They apologised and said it was an admin error.
I went in quite soon after to a room with a junior doctor, a health care assistant and a nurse practitioner. Lots of health questions, history etc, bloods, MRSA swabs, BP, height and weight, and then a full examination of heart, lungs, neurological signs. So unless my bloods come back iffy I go back on Tuesday 4th October for my fusion surgery. EEEK!!
I got some leaflets to read too. So it is really happening :shock:
Thanks for any pocket dwellers this morning.
