This hospital keeps getting better and better. At 05:00hrs I was awoken to be informed that I was having an operation first thing in the morning and I was not allowed to eat or drink anything. By the time I had asked what the operation was for, the nurses had left my cell. Now then, I was woken up 15 minutes ago to be informed that I had to prepare myself for surgery as i was the first one up on the board. I have been given a gown, soap, stockings, what appear to be paper knickers and a towel and I have been told to shower. I asked again what my operation is for, they told me the name, a kyphoplasty, but the nurses know nothing else and tell me I have to wait and see the doctor. I explain that I have been waiting since I arrived to speak to a doctor about treatment. As far as I am aware, I am here for a consultation. Not an operation in an hour that nobody has explained. Wikipedia better be right about this. Now they are telling me that in an hour I will be under general aesthetic and I am likely to be in recovery for ‘several’ hours. So then… In short, shit scared.
I will check back later.
