Went in for my anterior and posterior repair / TVT surgery this morning, and we were literally stood there at the desk handing the Sister my forms. My mobile started ringing, so my husband darted off with it - and came back seconds later with 'the look' on his face. My op had been cancelled due to a bed shortage.
I'm so upset. I was supposed to have this surgery 10 days ago and it was cancelled the night before. This time I got as far as kissing the kids goodbye, lots of tears, horrid suppositories etc just for it to happen again.
I called them this afternoon and they've rebooked me in for 3 weeks today - apparently as it was cancelled on the same day, they have to get me in within 28 days.
Bearing in mind I'd booked a holiday before any of these surgeries were booked, and I'd now be flying out 3 weeks after surgery, I've got a tricky decision to make and some really upset kids. Think I'll have to move it to next week and pay a fortune in admin etc, but this whole thing is so upsetting.
Sorry, just wanted to rant to people who know how hard it is leading up to an op. Obviously if any of you have had any experience of rearranging holidays / travel insurance I'd be really interested.
