Ive just had a phone call from the hospital saying I now have a bed ready for me to go for my operation on my foot (yes...that broken foot...that is still broken from back in February...).

So again, no diving...Im glad I managed 2 dives on Wednesday whilst I could. I think Im going to have to cancel the Dive Leader course as I just wont be deemed fit to dive by the army doctor.

Anyhoos, I go into hopsital tonight, operation tomorrow, out (hopefully) on Tuesday and with a bit of luck Ill finally be on the road to recovery and Ill be fit and running again in a couple of months time.

Adios Amigos...

Ax :star:

All the best, I'm sure it will all go fine and you'll be back diving sooner than you think!

Good luck :)

Good luck Amy

I'm sure all will be well and take the time you need to recover properly. The affects of an anaesthetic hang around for a while. Well they certainly seem to when you get older :eek:mg: Mind you, that may have been the morphine :p

Good luck!

Good luck with the op Amy

I am also going under the knife this week for a hernia op. I've been waiting for about 7 months and will be out of action for 12 weeks.

The female doctor who gave me my pre-op assesment last week was a real babe. Whooooooaaa!!

Shame i'll be asleep when she has her hands on me.

Balders.

Good luck with the operation Amy when it comes around, dont go and fall over on those crutches and break the other one then you will have a matching pair.

Best wishes

John

Probably got cancelled at the last minute 'cos one of the theatre staff had a non-specific episode of chest pains - eh Odin?

Not to worry, I expect it'll be like London Buses - three will come along eventually! (you'd better do a foot count when you come round....)

Nil by mouth - you're sure you're at hospital, not weight watchers??

LOL, Paul

PS hope it all goes smoothly, and you have a speedy recovery.

Good luck Amy.......
