Pre op

So today I visited Charing Cross Hospital ob my own for my ore op assessment for the fundo op I’m due to have soon. 
Was a bit confused as to why I was attending Charing Cross as all of it has been done at st Marys before but I believe the Hospital are partners so all the same team. 

It took FOREVER! so not use to how slow it all was! And I had to go through every inch of details with the nurse about my health, life, lungs etc she didn’t believe I knew all my drugs because I struggled to spell a few of them, even though she was googling the names. 

I just let her do her think, to be honest I didn’t have the energy to care or make a fuss over how she done anything or what she wrote to be fair. 

Then after about an hour talking to her in detail about my health history (of what I know) she then gave me the forms for bloods and and ecg which again I waited about 30/40 mins for each one. Everything takes so long in general hospitals compared to specialist ones! 

Or maybe I was just too tired today and wanted to get home! She then wanted me to see the Anaesthetist because my lung function is low (70%) not really low! But I remember arranged for a another day next week as had to get back for the dogs as it was already 1:30pm! Charing Cross isn’t that far from Putney Bridge so it’s a much easier journey than st Marys. 

So if I end up having it at Charing Cross I won’t complain! To be honest I would rather have it all down at Frimley or Harefield because they’re much nicer hospitals but that’s out of my control! 

I didn’t really get that much information today, the usual don’t eat 6 hours before the op, and I might be on for a couple of days after but didn’t say where I would have it, nor did she give me a date! 

Felt a bit of a pointless appointment to be honest but that’s how it’s done so just have to go with the flow. She’s given me a number to call to try book the op, I just want it over and done with now, it’s gna be so hard with the diet after, liquid diet and soups I just want it get going so it’s over before my holidays in the summer! 

I’m on the urgent list to it shouldn’t be a long wait and everything else has been fast tracked so been quite lucky shouldn’t complain. 

Will update more when I have news or the procedure is done!
