....I go into the QE to have my Hickman line removed. Or rather 'yanked out' as it was described to me. Apparently its quite a simple procedure but has to be done in theatre by a surgeon 'just in case'.
Just in case of what I wonder? Probably best not to think about that I guess. It will mean a whole day on the ward waiting for a slot in theatre which doesnt sound like a lot of fun. It will be worth it though, Im really fed up of this piece of tubing sticking out of my chest. It doesnt cause any real problems apart from at night when I often roll over and end up with the clamp impaled on my boob. Thats painful !
Im hoping to resolve the 'hair situation' later this week. Im having it cut Ive decided. Quite short. It really is tatty now. If I had saved the amount that has fallen out I could have knitted a jumper ! Ofcourse I shall have a big bald patch shaved in it next week when I have the horn removed anyway so maybe that wont be so visible with a shorter style? Or is that just wishful thinking? haha
