Today I went to the Hospital for my pre-op assessment. It was very thorough including all past operations. Apart from my arrhythmia being quite rapid again (probably nerves) and the difficulty in extracting blood from me for a blood test, all went well.
I have had a hoarse voice now for weeks and was worried that this might stop me from having the operation so after leaving the hospital I went again to see my GP.
This time the GP said that it was probably my asthma inhaler that was causing the throat and advised me to have another one that can be used with a spacer. I stopped taking my inhaler. let's hope this works!! I have to see the practice nurse to be shown how to use the new inhaler. I have an appointment for Wednesday morning.
