I rang the hospital on Monday this week and found that I’m still not at the top of the waiting list. The waiting list isn’t 16 weeks, it’s 18.
Because I was expecting the surgery to happen in early August, I organised what I thought was my last period several weeks ago. I was delighted! The last of the agony! More recently, I started to have problems with my symptoms but I thought the surgery would happen sooner rather than later. Sure enough, I started to bloat out terribly and I was having some spotting. Despite my taking the birth control pill every day, I was having some spotting. I was struggling!
So on Monday when I was told that I’d need to wait for another two weeks, I gave up and decided to have another period. I started my period yesterday. I didn’t bother going into work because I was up in the night from the pain. I was having the same problem last night.
On top of my period, I have a nasty head cold that my husband kindly given me. I’m probably not making a lot of sense. I’m home again today and am trying not to be in too much pain. Between struggling to breathe and being unable to stand up properly, I’m feeling a bit like I’m falling apart.
