Just a quick one to let you all know I got a call from the plastic surgeon who is doing the breast reconstruction. I’ve made an appointment to meet him on Monday at midday. It’s a half hour consultation to make a decision on the surgery we’re going for and to be examined to make sure it’s doable. I can wait a few days to make a decision or decide at the meeting.
If I decide straight away then I can go for a surgical pre-assessment (blood test, weight, general health assessment, MRSA test) that day and then they look for a good date for surgery. I may have to get another CT scan to map my vessels and arteries. But I’m going to ask if they can use the one I had done last week.
I’m an “urgent care” patient so the surgery is prioritised and should be 1-2 weeks after the appointment on Monday.
So that’s sorted.
Now I’m off to stare at the stars and learn about expeditions to Mars.
