I had another appointment with the pre-op people at my local hospital today. I don`t know why they needed to assess me again when they saw me in september, anyway, last December my height was taken along with other details, &I measured 5`4" as Iv`e always been all my adult life. At this assessment however, I appear to have lost an inch in height, surely that doesn`t happen in just 3 months? the nurse measuered me again to make sure, & still the missing inch! what on earth is happening to me. I know people often lose height as they age, but not that quickly surely. I`m quite scared now!
