    After a year of waiting on a referral and a triage approval 5 months ago, I now have a date to meet the surgeon on my 60th birthday! Hopefully it's a good present. The booking admin said that even though I was accepted during triage, the surgeon (Dr Kuchinad) can still recommend a delay or alternatives. Or if he accepts me, then another delay until a hole opens up in his calendar. But at least a decision made then.
    Keeping my fingers crossed until then.

    Thanks - coming quick now and like most, excited, nervous, worried but I’m so tired of being tired and sore and limited in what I can do
    Hopefully we won’t get too much snow around then as my better half wil have dog, house, grandkids and snow removal on top of my incessant demands! :loll:
