So sorry to let this out when so many of you are suffering but I'm having such a bad day today. Had to come home from work as I just keep breaking down crying.
I still haven't heard of a date for my op yet. I phoned the consultants secretary Monday afternoon and she said they are still waiting for theatre space. Apparently the consultant doesn't have any fixed space and has to apply for it through admissions (this is private as I'm in BUPA through work). Told her how nerve wracking it was waiting and she said she would e-mail him.
I was originally diagnosed on 2nd Sept but didn't see the consultant dealing with it until 20th Sept as he'd been on holiday. He indicated that he thought the pre-ops would be the following week and the abdominal Radical Hysterectomy the following week (which would have been this week). Now I'm thinking it's probably going to be at least another couple of weeks but the not knowing is so upsetting. They said they'd ring me as soon as they knew so it's no point pestering them I guess.
The meltdown at work happened when I realised that because my op is likely to be later rather than sooner then it would be possible that hubby wouldn't be able to get any time off work when I get out and I haven't got anyone else to look after me.
I'm just so down today and it's all getting on top of me. Has anyone else had a similar reason for the wait?
