Good Morning all you really nice people. I'm on my way now and have managed to get the surgeon I have dealt with all the way from diagnosis to operation. I was diagnosed in March this year with a rather large central aneurysm with a daughter sac attached so it has rather weak sides but the consultant I am under I truly trusted a million percent. I had a clinic appointment with him on Wednesday this week only to find out he's moving to one of the large London Hospitals and I was given the devastating news that after been told in March I would be getting my surgery done in July to find he might not be able to do it before he leaves!! I was totally devastated. I felt as bad not knowing if he would be doing my surgery as when I was first diagnosed. This morning I have taken a call from his secretary and he IS going to carry out my surgery on the 18th of July so not long to wait now. The relief is overwhelming. I really trust this Consultant and feel that is a big head start on what's to come and now need to be all prepared and in a good mind place ready for the surgery. I will be reporting back hopefully on how my procedure goes and give a little bit of inspiration to all you other good people out there in the same position and waiting for your time to get rid of these ticking time bombs in your brain that stop you leading a life you want to lead. I know the worry and stress is terrible not just for you but for all your families as well. I know since my diagnosis it's played havoc with my family members who are worried all the time and seem to be full of anxiety and stress. My husband is in shock at the moment and coming to terms with this is really going to be happening now and in just three weeks and not the distant future any more. Keep brave people and try and stay POSITIVE!!
My very best wishes to all you other sufferers
