    Hey Lovely, FINALLY I get access to the internet! You will be in safe hands. Just remember, the public has a long waiting list but once you get IN to the clinics, it is a very quick turn around to get into surgery.



    I'm sorry it's so sore. And so complex. Let me know when you get your appointment Maybe we can catch up. I can come keep you company for a bit

    no need to sneak away - I'll just go! I'll put you in my diary and they won't blink an eye! I'll bring coffee Real coffee The GOOD stuff! I know where the good Barista is!

    Ringing to make sure they have the referral is a great start Ask for an appt ETA too.

    If you don't get a Wed appointment and the girls are willing, I'll try take them for a walk because they'll go crazy waiting.

    The best on campus barista is in the main cafe. But if you prefer Hudsons, there is one in the Private. Don't get coffee from the cafe next to the outpatient clinics - I've never been able to drink it. It's the same company as the main cafe but it isn't as nice for whatever reason.

    on the upside, i've dealt with this one before - and he was good! the only reason i'm going back is because the previous damage doesn't look like it can be permanently fixed - he said that many moons ago - so it's something i have to deal with every now and again. he knew what he was doing, addressed the problems by feel on examining me - so actually noticed all the clunking that others ignored. i felt like he was actually listening to me about the problem instead of just acting like he knew what it was and dismissing my own explanations of the pain/clunking/movement kwim?

    Yeah i'm looking forward to seeing him, the surgeon i saw last week acually said "i'd be interested to see how they actually treat it" so i'm sure it's going to be an interesting appointment
