Operation on the 5th of September. It would have been earlier, but my surgeon is on holiday, and the option of another surgeon and a general anesthetist was outweighed by the fact that my surgeon has his own team, has done 14 oesophagectomies this year, and has only had one death.................which was nothing to do with the operation! Them is good odds I reckon!
My result from the treadmill cardio pulmonary test was extremely good, and as the main job post op is to get the lungs working again, I think I may beat this thing after all! I have had my doubts over the last few weeks, anybody would have, but everything is looking positive - including me.
I'm allowed a mobile phone in the ward, so I should be able to update regularly after the first 4 or 5 days (I'm in High Dependence Unit for the first few days).
I shall now go and see if Nina has finished her list of things I have to do around the house before I go in................and I'm not kidding! :) It's a small price to pay for the amount of nursing I'm going to put her through! Hehe!
