It’s been a while since that you, dear reader have had a medical update. Last week I visited Frenchay to see an ankle specialist. He decided that surgery was worth a shot to reduce pain, and increase movement by smoothing out scar tissue that may be affecting the cartilage area.
Let’s book that in as a day case he said, which is when I chipped in that I already had a day case scheduled at the end of January to remove some metal wires from my right elbow.
Excellent he said, let’s save you having two general anaesthetics and book in both surgeries together.
Hmmm…excellent I thought…good old NHS, just like Sainsburys – buy one, get one free!
