I am just back from the hospital where I am having my gallbladder removed on Tues 21st. I was swabbed for Mrsa,given an ecg,and had a full blood count The nurse couldn't get blood out of either of my arms and had to have a doctor to do it. To say I was stressed is an understatement. I have never had any problems having blood taken beforeand she said it was very slow.Also,as I have said in a previous post,I have a \"funny\" heartbeat known as Left Bundle Branch Block,which I have been assured is nothing to worry about. Well,not according to them, as I was told I would have to have a letter from my Gp for the Anaesthetist. I am going private for this,and they have no access to my NHS records so I have managed to get an Appt for Monday morning to see a GP,before I can get a letter. I wish I had just stuck with the good old NHS now as this has been a hassle from start to finish. The consultant they arranged for me does his clinic at this hospital but his operations at another,and my healthcare provider don't have a contract with them. Even the nurse seemed surprised that he was operating from there and said that normally the stitches dissolved ,but \" She didnt know if he used dissolving ones\" I have to wait on the results from all the blood,urine etc tests today,and \" If there is anything wrong we will be iin touch\"
I just feel they should have done this pre op test sooner,as I only have till Monday now to get this sorted out.
Very stressed out now,and worried even more about the anaesthetic
