I went for the pre-op assessment for the cardioversion today and they went through all the questions for anaesthetic. Finally got to did I have a wheeze, so I explained I had bronchiectasis and obliterative bronchiolitis. I am not sure the nurse knew what they are, also told her about the congenital heart disease return. Not sure she understood that either. However no doubt the anaesthetist will study it carefully and take precautions, the consultant will be there too. She asked me whether I understood what was going to be done so I explained that this would be my 11th and I know others here have had more, so she reckoned I probably knew more than she did. I just hope it works because I know that often they become less and less successful. I shall know by Tuesday afternoon!
