On Monday 4 July I met first a registrar with a student in tow, then the surgeon and discussed my need for surgery to fix the cyst. The surgeon agreed to fit me in as soon as possible, but warned me that he may not be able to provide a permanent fix, and that I may need to stay in hospital overnight, something I am keen to avoid.
Following this appointment I have received a letter advising me that I have been scheduled for surgery on Wednesday 20 July. Fingers crossed that the surgery will be successful in completely resolving the current situation, and that I won’t have to stay in overnight. I want to feel whole again.
