Got a date for my TTT
« on: December 16, 2009, 05:07:08 PM »
I had to ring my OS's secretary today to check the date for my follow up appointment for my right knee and to discuss new problems with my left knee and she told me they had been discussing dates and they had booked me in for February 5th to have the TTT on my left knee.

Although it is a little while away I feel better knowing I have a date to look forward to (if that's the best words for it).

I am more concerned what will be said about my left knee as the physio thinks I have cartilege problems in addition to my patella issues, just hope it can be sorted all at once.

I will also ask if my screws can ne removed from right knee at same time.

Glad you now have a date to prepair yourself for your TTT and sounds like a good plan to have your screws removed at the same time. I am sure you are having the surgery done by Mr Mark Bowditch at Ipswich Hospital who one of the best knee surgeons in the UK so are in safe hands, who knows may see Jinny my sister before you go into theatre.

Yes it is Mark Bowditch doing my surgery, I really trust him and have only ever heard good things about him. I will look out for jinny when I go in.

Had the phone call from the hospital to book the appointment for my pre op today. I have that on 20th Jan but should be straight forward as I have done it all before.
