Brilliant news 🤗🤗x

All the best Barb6374!

Thank you x

I’m really pleased they’ve got you in again so soon. Is this still in London or are they fitting you in at Plymouth? I have a vested interest as I’m hopefully having my CABG before Christmas in Plymouth or London so any delays would affect me too (selfish I know). Thanks for keeping us updated though as it’s helpful to see things moving along.

Hi thereI'm in at Plymouth. If you get to go london they don't cancel due to beds or emergencys.

I really wanted to go london , transport arranged for you, own room , tv etc ( selfish reasons lol ) but I'm a type 1 diabetic and my diabetic specialist dr was happier I'm going to Plymouth as they have an in house diabetic team , but with nhs you can't guarantee your surgery ( not hospitals fault ) but what a roller coaster it is .😀

Also it would be great to hear your story , we can compare notes lol.

You can message me if you want to know anything I might be able to help with.

Thanks. I think I’m well prepared now thanks to this forum. It’s just the daily wait for the postman to see if I have a letter. Good luck with your op. I hope it goes well.

Sorry, I missed your question. I'm told there may be a clinic at the end of October and one at the start of December. Fingers crossed I may be in one of those.

Hello :-)

I did not think it would be long and so pleased for you :-) x

Thank you 😍xx

Great news Barbara. I just had valve replacement in Oxford after 4 delays. It gets tiring. Just remember they will get it done It’s just a case of the most critical first. Wishing you all the best. I am 3 weeks post op and despite managing my chest I feel amazing xxx

Thank you. It's great to hear that you feel amazing. I love reading about people's recovery , it helps me alot.Xx

Fingers crossed you get the date this time, Good Luck🤞

What a gorgeous photo! Hope everything goes well for you. My hubby had to put up with a few cancellations when he had his quad bypass in Coventry.I'm Type 1 diabetic (35 years) and the times I've been in hospital, they manage insulin dosage really well (Much better than me!!).

Keep us posted. Sending love and hugs. Jan xxx

Barb6374 in reply to hadleigh71

Hi , I've just looked back to when I commented on your last post and you said yours was on the 9th. At the time , mine was on the 5th, but now mines the 9th aswell.Here's hoping great success and recovery for us both 😀

Hello what hospital are you having your op . Mine is at st George's hospital in London

Barb6374 profile image
Barb6374 in reply to hadleigh71

Mine is at derriford Plymouth . It's an hour away , it's the nearest one that does heart surgery. When I was meant to have my op in July it was in a private hospital in London .

My surgeon in Plymouth goes to London every so often to get the waiting lists down ( I think ). Because of a cough I got they couldn't go ahead so I was put back on the Plymouth waiting lists and since then , my surgeon has not gone back to London.

Hello My hospital st George's is again about an hour away have a couple of choices if I get the bus it takes just over an hour as it goes round the houses the other choice is by train which takes even longer hopefully my other half will take me by car which we can do do in about 40 minutes also I have discovered that the surgeon also travels so one of my local hospitals he's day clinics but anyway that's me for now speak soon Michael

Great news, good luck x

Thank you x

Thank you.I love Xmas so hopefully I can enjoy it xx

I think my mind works in strange ways. When I read the title of your post, I thought you were going to be asking for advice about how far to go on a 3rd date!!!

Hope all goes well for you on the day!
