A very upsetting day

June 12th, 2006

Today has been very upsetting. I didn’t get anything to eat for hours before the operation, then the surgeon kept me waiting because he was waiting for consent to operate on his first patient (I was second in line). The parents of the first patient eventually turned up to give consent, but by then it was too late for him to do my operation, and he passed my case to his assistant surgeon. They changed their mind about keyhole surgery, and instead did open surgery. Very painful after the operation.

Then this evening one of my hernias recurred, I think the stitches broke. So I’m due to have another operation first thing tomorrow morning, under general anaesthetic again. Apparently the recurrence rate is only around 1% when the operation is done by an experienced surgeon, so I’m feeling very unlucky.
