Finally, I have made the decision, a decision that, who knows, might be the most important decision of my life!
The experts have been consulted, the internet has been trawled, the lists of pros and cons have been made, friends and family and blogs have been questioned, and now the research can stop, and I must now fully commit to a course of action that everyone has pointed out is entirely my responsibility.
Time to trust the experts.
Following the advice of some, and disregarding the advice of others, I have opted for surgery. There is a complicating factor, which is the effect that the general anaesthetic might have on my MS, so I have to go see a consultant anaesthetist first.
Were it not for the pain, I would like to watch the operation, because it is performed through five tiny cuts in my abdomen, into which they put robots. The robots are controlled by the surgeon with a screen and a mouse. For him, it’s a three hour video game.
The operation should be in about six weeks. If I hear any more I’ll let you know. All other engagements for November and December are now on hold!
