Pre-assessment day

Pre-assessment day today. Quite impressive the way the hospital dealt with it, much like a production line.   Lots of prodding, swabbing and testing by various people:  height, weight, lung capacity, measured for compression socks, blood tests for “everything”: swabs for MRSA in mouth, nose and groin, urine test, chat with junior doctor and all paperwork sorted out.  Strangely, the paperwork was the longest session.

After the operation, I will spend a day in the High Dependency Unit and apparently will be given amiodarone; definitely not looking forward to that.  It still looks like 6-8 weeks before admission.
