St-Richards-Hospital Tuesday 7th June 2022. Well, I’ve finally had my hip operation after having it cancelled last week. It’s been an extremely long day, though. I was in theatre for six hours and then spent another three hours in recovery.
The good news is that they didn’t have to break my leg, although it was touch and go; the bad news, which I’m sure is only temporary. My blood pressure is rather low, which is why I was in recovery for so long.
My blood pressure is still low, and they are now talking about putting me on a drip to get some more fluids into me.
I have also been wiped off the hospital’s computer system! So they can’t give me any antibiotics yet (one of the main reasons for being in here!) One minute the nurse was inputting my stats; the next minute, I’d gone, completely wiped off. For some reason, the system discharged me. And, of course, without being on the system, nothing can happen.
