Hi Hop,

I am in for my TTT tomorrow. I'll keep a post op diary and let you know how it goes.
Mine is NHS but in a BUPA hospital- I am not sure if this will make much of a difference.

Hi Elle

All the best for tomorrow, if you're in a BUPA hospital I suspect you will have all of the benefits of a private patient! Woo Hoo
Did you're wait for surgery go over 6 months? If it did hopspital guidlines state that you have to go private!

I'm envious, wish mine was tomorrow!!  ;)
