Went for shoulder surgery today at 11am. Had been fasting since 6am so was pretty hungry even by 11am! Got there, met the anaesthetist and surgeon within 2 hours and everything seemed hunky dory. 3 hours later (5 in total) I was told my appointment was now cancelled as the day surgery had ran out of time. How is this possible and why oh why wasn't I regularly updated with what was happening? Why did they wait until 4pm before telling me they had ran out of time? Were they hoping to squeeze me in at the end of the day? Very disappointed.
