Today is the day - or rather - today was the day.
Now how do I tell you this - THEY DIDN'T DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After us both spending a sleepless night wondering whether the alarm would go off at 6am, we set off for Blackpool Victoria Hospital and arrived far too early for the 7.30am appointment. A lovely nurse let us in and we waited 'til they 'opened' and let everyone else in. I hung on 'til we found out that the op. would be around 10 - 10.30am before I left and came home.
No sooner had I taken my coat off the phone rang and this voice said "can you come for me, they aren't doing it".
In fact, the surgeon had seen 'peg leg' (whose AKA will probably remain for ever now!!!) and almost advised him that he would not get any benefit from what they could do and he could end up worse. The only reasonable option left was not to have any intrusion but to go back in 3 months for a further check.
WHY COULDN'T THEY HAVE SAID THIS 2 YEARS AGO???????????????
