been for my pre op assessment today, with all the time I spent in the waiting room I was there nearly 3 hours. I still have not been given a date and I was in tears again whilst talking with the nurse, I am getting more anxious each time and stressed about the op. I'm not normally like this and am frustrated by the lack of information. I've learnt more from talking to people here than the professionals have told me. Told today I woul get a letter detailing what would happen, I can't ask questions then though. Was given a leaflet (2008) about anaesthetics, no discussion entered into. Because I explained when I got chance that I had never had an op before she offered to show me the day surgery ward. Not sure this was reassuring as it just felt cramped. I asked about privacy was told I coul talk to Dr in a separate room if I asked on the day. Am I expecting too much? I was also told I could not be a day case unless someone stayed with me for 24 hrs. This was not mentioned previously or I would have talked with family and friends in advance. They wanted a name of someone, yet I had told them before that I lived on my own. Do they not read the notes!?
Sorry for the rant I just don't understand the lack of proper communication
