Scheduling and admission

Again I had to wait a while for my surgery date. This time it was complicated for them to coordinate the local schedules with the schedule of the visiting surgeon. I eventually got a letter to let me know that it would be the 12th of May.

Two weeks before surgery I had an appointment for admission. A nurse in urology took blood and urine samples and measured my pulse and blood pressure. Then I got sent off to a different part of the hospital to meet an anaesthetist, who seemed happy that I wouldn’t pose any problems.

The whole thing was finished in just over an hour.

Around this time I took some “before” photos, so that I could compare afterwards. You can see them by clicking here.
