Unhappy Awaiting Procedure

I am 59 and awaiting the Oral Surgery team at Greenlane Hospital to access my importance of necessary work. Unfortunatly one health board has declined my operation due to the severity of the op. So I am waiting...Feeling very anxious and worried my opening is only 11mm so I am not in a good space..

Re: Awaiting Procedure

Hang in there hasty58 and do whatever makes you feel better in the meantime. Soothing company, baths, relaxing music, haagen dazs milkshakes, meditation, geting lost in a great TV series...

Is it a joint replacement surgery? Have you investigated other treatment options?

It might be an idea to check out what kind of free advocacy your community offers for this situation. That way, you will be prepared with some help if need be.

Let us know how you make out.

Hoping for the best! Fingers crossed
