I’ve been through the all the pre-surgery assessments. I’ve met with the surgeon. All I need now is my date of surgery.
It’s a bit frustrating waiting to know when this will happen. It seems that everything else is on hold until I get that date. I can’t book holidays, I can’t make plans with friends, and I can’t let work know about my absence. Not until I get my date.
Once I have my date, then I can plan for the dieting before the surgery, and the recovery time after. The estimate is that I’ll need 2-4 weeks off work after the surgery, which obviously means that I’ll be out of action for a while.
I’ve asked the surgeon’s secretary a few times, but she keeps putting me off saying she’ll let me know soon.
So I guess I’ll just have to carry on waiting.
