    Under the knife



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Well a stressful day , I had to visit St James this morning for a pre op assessment, I set off plenty of time 9 for a 10.30 appointment and Leeds threw its worst ,not helped by bustery wind I think every vehicle in Leeds was on the road and I took every short cut I knew and arrived at 10,20 thankfully clinic running late

    I was greeted by a nurse who looks after me at weekends so that made things easier , a few checks double checks on medication sent me for an ECG and wheeled in to see a very attractive young female doctor "call me Sam " she said .anyway re assured me I was making the right decision and explained the anaestheic will be a nerve block . Had one before and cant feel a thing

    So all booked in on the 25th strict instructions re fasting and having a fistula fitted, which takes 6-8 weeks to grow and then the remove lines from my Chest

    Back on Ward tomorrow so doing bloods then and screening for Mrsa and something else that escapes me probably rabies

    Seeing my consultant at some point, they certainly don't mess about.

    Y'know Andy, so many folks knock our health service, and yes it does have its failings, but it's still the best in the world, both you and I are still drawing breath thanks to the NHS. Mind you there are probably some here who think that's a failing Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time my friend. Had what I hope, my final blood testing session yesterday.

    Hope it all goes well, Andrew! It will be so much easier once the chest lines are out. At least that is usually the case. Good luck.
