Many thanks - yesterday was the worst - I was just outside the operating suite and had been "marked-up" by the surgeon .....

Many thanks - I may have to do that - it seems that I am at the top of the list for surgery (because of the delays), but bottom of the list for overnight accommodation (because my condition is minor and not life-threatening) .....

Re: Inguinal Hernia Repair Repair Repeatedly Delayed

I feel lucky and grateful that my cancer treatment has been quick and mainly trouble free but think that whatever is wrong with you, the treatment can be patchy depending on any number of factors.

I'm sorry you've had such a bad time of it and wish you all he best for some more speedy treatment.

Poor you, Omah, that must be awful never knowing whether they will do it this time or not, especially as you got as far as the operating suite.

I do hope you aren't sent away again next time.
Good luck.

Many thanks - Perhaps the bed issue will improve now spring is here and "ailments" decline .....

Still a bit of wait.
Too early, but you might grab a bed this time.

Good deal. An early admission means your doctor and team are clear-headed, rested, and ready to go. Plus, you'll be able to sleep the rest of the day away. Good luck!
