My spine surgeon has dictated to his colon surgeon colleague that he ought to wait another 3 months, just in case ( very minute chance ) my fixation breaks and he has to rectify it, before he drills any stoma holes in me.

This means that I don’t see the light of day before 12 o’clock for 3 more months. I think that to my spinal surgeon this is no big deal? To me, it’s bloody torment. I wonder how he would feel if he was bed bound until midday every day, without particularly strong medical grounds for such an imposition. It makes going away for even one night a logistical nightmare , unless I have a trained carer to accompany me – something that’s both expensive, and a spontaneity killer.

I meet up with him tomorrow to ‘ discuss ‘.
