My op was cancelled AGAIN!!!
As you know I was due to go into hospital today for knee revision surgery.I had a phone call yesterday afternoon saying that they had discovered, on looking through my notes for today ,that at my pre op in December I had a urine infection.This had been overlooked.I went down to the hospital to give another sample but they didn't know until 10am today the result.So I had to turn up at 7am this morning,go through all the rigmarole of seeing anaesthetist,getting crutches,having obs done and great big arrow on my right leg only to be told I still had an infection and my consultant would not risk operating.I am gutted.They have given me another date that is five weeks away.What a waste of NHS money!!
