Hello everybody, my appointment at St James hospital was for 9.30 this morning, the letter said to bring a urine sample, and to expect to be there for at least 3/4hours . We arrived at twenty past nine, and was seen by the consultant at about 9.45' which was super as one expects to be waiting a lot longer, because these places are busy. The consultant went through my condition with me and explained how they would be able to help me if I was suitable for the operation. What the letter did not say is that I would have no tests today and that I would only have a chat with the consultant who would explain what my options were ,and that I would have to go back on two/three separate days for further tests which I don't mind but I had got myself all worked up for the tests, anyway I now await the letters to tell me what days my appointments will be . But I must say that the consultant that I saw was lovely and explained everything to me which answered most of my questions at this time . will let you know the outcome of the tests when I have had them.
