After visiting A&E I was told I was getting admitted and would have to have surgery on my foot. Moved me up to a ward at 4.30am.
In the morning a surgeon came round and told me I could eat, so I did. 30 minutes later a senior surgeon came to tell me there was a surgery slot soon, as long as I had been nil-by-mouth. Which thanks to the first surgeon I hadn't been.
30 hours later, I am still waiting to have the surgery. I wouldn't have a problem with the wait if it weren't for the fact that a) I am perfectly fit and healthy and could have waited at home, and b) I hadn't been told every hour or so that "you'll be in for surgery very soon". Still waiting for surgery as I write this.
