I think a lot of the hospitals are overwhelmed with Covid cases in the UK, my best friend is a nurse in London and she told me all elective surgeries are cancelled for the next couple of months, only emergencies are being dealt with ( namely accidents ) Likewise here in Portugal it is the same story, I've been basically told my surgery will now only be in 2022 unless the Covid situation changes.
A year out? That’s crazy. I hope that turns out to be wrong. I guess until those of us waiting for surgery- really, until we are admitted the day of —there’s a chance of being postponed. It adds another layer to the emotions mentally preparing for surgery
I’m also in the UK had my pre op yesterday for TRKR on 18 Jan. my hospital (private) have cancelled all surgery this week so I’ll probably get cancelled too. The name of the game atm it seems.
Cases are rising at an alarming rate in my area. All a bit scary.
Any more news on your op? I have just had call to say my op on (TRKR) 18 Jan is cancelled. It’s a private hospital but they are taking on NHS cancer patients whilst NHS deal with the virus patients, which is right and proper. Let’s hope the numbers start to come down soon.
