I’m persevering as best I can to get ready.
It’s a bit dispiriting. I feel I’m fighting the system. Putting your head down and just going with it seems to be the way of it.
It just feels wrong to me. And wrong for me.
I get that it is routine for them. I’m just not happy with blind faith. My health, my responsibility.
What I did achieve today was:
I have emailed my initial list of questions to J at Dr P’s office. She will forward them on to him on holidays. I pretty much begged for a pre-op consultation.
I spoke to Dr A’s office. I now have a pre-op consultation scheduled for next week.
I spoke to the pre-admissions office at the hospital. They don’t yet have my admissions paperwork. They will probably schedule my additional tests for the week before my operation. She will pass on my concerns to the dietitian.
