When I had a telephone appointment with my consultant ( I live 50 mile away from hospital ) end of May I told him that I was now ready for a hysterectomy - I asked if he could put me on the waiting list- he agreed and wanted to see me face to face to discuss what bits he's going to remove - I saw him last Thursday and whilst I was at hospital they did pre assess weight height questionnaires and also the mrsa swabs. I said I had an appointment through mid July for bone density can and consultant said I should go as normal to that. But I was on the diary - this leads me to think my op could be in Aug ? Just wondered if the swabs they took mean I have to be admitted by a certain time? Any one know ?
