Well dressings off this morning after op been blind since yesterday.
It nearly didnâ€™t go a head as my PCR tests hadnâ€™t being sent to the NHS. They had taken me off the lists. I had the results on my phone and hubbyâ€™s mate is theatre manager so he got me back on the list. Also first one down ğŸ˜‰.
Went through the form filling I kept mentioning my drugs as no one was really interested and I wanted them noted on surgery forms.
My God the surgeon was abrupt and rude ( since found out they call her Miss military knickers. Very fitting name but a brilliant surgeon apparently)she barely acknowledged me. Surgery was much longer than they thought would be instead of 30 mins it was 1hour 45mins . Apparently Iâ€™m a bleederğŸ˜‚.I was given a care pack with dressings and drops and lotions as well as antibiotics. Bare in mind I couldnâ€™t see I asked the nurse if this was compatible with my medications and did I need to stop my Baricitinib and MTX . Asked what these drugs were for as never heard of them and couldnâ€™t spell them . Never heard of Jak inhibitors and didnâ€™t know what immunosuppressant meant and certainly couldnâ€™t say it . I asked her to contact the pharmacy who let rip that drugs had been given to a patient without checking interactions. Miss military knickers was contacted and had to leave surgery to come to ward â€¦ boy she was not happy. New prescription issued and double crossed with pharmacy. She said to nurse quick thinking you saved us there. I did the old hmmhmm cough and nurse oh it wasnâ€™t me it was the patient. I got no acknowledgment.
Itâ€™s quite humiliating when you leave they have a check list before you go . 2 sheets 2 pillows and surgery gown all ticked off before you leave. No lifting and sleeping up right Lots of ice packs and lotions and potions for 2 weeks then stitches out by Miss military knickers . Off work for 2 weeks .. they wonâ€™t be happy.
