Hi @Zoe7 Thanks for asking.
How have you been?
I still have a few weeks to wait, yet for my surgery.
It's booked for 6th of March (a Wednesday), hopefully they don't change that date (as hospitals do).
My pre-surgery medical assessment is on 28th of February (a Thursday) - that goes for 2 hours.
That's when they examine every health implication (aspect) - & I have to talk to the Anaesthetist about being fine with all the anaesthetic drugs, etc.
I'm getting more anxious, leading up to it all - which is not helping.
This will be my 4th surgery, one that I should have never needed to have.
My recent (4) trips to A&E last December have made the process more triggering, & maybe more emotionally complicated.
