I went for my pre-op yesterday and took my repeat prescription list with me, it's easier than taking all the meds.
Anyways while I was being assessed by the nurse she's asking me about ops and things then asks what meds I'm on and looks at the list then looks at me and says "But you look so healthy"
Now you'd think a nurse would know that not all diseases are obvious.
Anyway just scraped through to be fit enough for the op tomorrow blood pressure was just inside the acceptable limit, she told me had the lower one been one point higher they wouldn't accept me and again she gave me a funny look... so there I go explaining yet again, yep I'm only 47 but had high blood pressure since my early 20s runs in the family that's why I have 3 different meds for it and the angina.
It wouldn't have been so bad if she'd been a young nurse but she must have been older than me.
So moral of the story seems if you don't look sick then there is nothing wrong with you. I wish lol
