My forthcoming Op has been delayed one week because I have a latex allergy.
I didn’t realise this would be an huge issue but apparently it means I have to have a theatre specially prepared and so I’m now first in at 7am on the 21st August.
Disappointed a little as the sooner I can get in and get the Op over with the sooner I can start the long recovery process but I understand why they need to be cautious.
At least the delay gives me some more time to sort out things like baggy track-pants and shorts. Where can I get those track-suit bottoms that have poppers up the entire leg? They’d be ideal for wearing with the frame. I had hoped the summer would mean I could rely on shorts for the first month or so but from what I have seen of the weather so far I think we can forget that idea!
