Hello all, since we last spoke I went to my NHS fracture clinic on Monday (20/2), ATR confirmed by the doctor, no scans or anything, new cast on and told to return Wednesday (22/2) to see an orthopedic surgeon to discuss options. Wednesday was interesting, we discussed at length the different options and I opted for surgery, I had to make a choice so that is what I went for. I have to be on the day surgery ward at 0715 tomorrow morning (big thanks to the taxi of ‘Dad’) and we go from there. My surgery will be 9 days after my injury, this frustrates me a little but other than that my spirits are good, it is ‘a plan’ and I am happy to be making progress.
Is 9 days unreasonable, any thoughts out there? What have other people experienced with the NHS in the UK? Other than the timescale I must say that everyone that has seen me in various departments have been wonderful, friendly and uplifting, which is nice.
So, that is all from me for now, thanks for the nice comments on my last post and it is good to be in the company of others with experience and thoughts on ATR and recovery, a nice community feel!
