Surgery Cancelled – What A Disheartening Mess

by InvisiblyMe

Less than an hour after publishing my post to say I’ll be away from the blogging world for a while due to my surgery being next week, I had a call to say it has to be cancelled. What a shitshow. I’ve just removed that post so nobody wastes their time reading it.

There has been some political BS happening at the hospital over the last few days but I was reassured surgeries were still going ahead and they know nothing to suggest otherwise, which was clearly not true. I have some emails to write in the hopes of campaigning against these changes and standing up for my surgeon at the centre of the conflict, but right now I feel more deflated than angry so they’ll have to wait.

Given the situation, they don’t know when the op will be rescheduled and I don’t know if I can keep going through this after years of waiting and being messed around. I feel pretty pissed off and fed up with it all.

I also wanted to apologise to those who kindly commented on my earlier post – your kind wishes were much appreciated.

I am SO sorry to hear that, and am praying for a positive re-schedule, pronto.

Vanessa June 7, 2023 - 6:30 pm

That sucks!! This happened to me before and really ruined some important plans, but in the end there’s nothing I could do about it.
I hope they’ll reschedule you soon!

Sandee June 7, 2023 - 6:56 pm

I’m so sorry, Caz. Big hug. ♥

Barbara June 7, 2023 - 7:32 pm

I am so sorry Caz, you have been messed about so often its just not fair. They should at least give you another date for the surgery. I will keep everything posted you hear soon and keep us posted on here as we all think of you. Hugs xxxx

Thus hurt so much to read Caz. Just sending so much love…

Liz June 7, 2023 - 8:24 pm

So sorry to hear its been cancelled and you being mucked about. I hope they act quick to give you an appointment very soon for it.
Its not right to be mucked about like this.

Hugs. Xx

Cate June 7, 2023 - 8:24 pm

What a shit show is so accurate. I’m so sorry this has happened. It would be nice if they realised what they do to their patients when they do this. I hope you can get your surgery soon.

Popping Wheelies June 7, 2023 - 9:02 pm

I am sorry, Caz. That is so stressful. 🌻

Sherry Felix June 7, 2023 - 9:14 pm

What a drag. Hope the reschedule is soon.

ruthsoaper June 7, 2023 - 9:58 pm

I’m so sorry Caz. Praying that it gets resolved soon.

Terri, Olive Tree Saints June 7, 2023 - 10:01 pm

I’m so sorry Caz. My heart hurts for you right now. I hope they’ll get their ‘stuff’ together soon and you’ll be able to have your surgery without having to wait an eternity. Sending love and gentle hugs to you sweet friend.

Ned Hamson June 7, 2023 - 10:10 pm

So sorry to hear, hope you get rescheduled soon.

Carax&VanNuys June 7, 2023 - 10:11 pm

Also very sorry… 😿💖


Deborah June 7, 2023 - 10:53 pm

Oh no I’m so sorry to read this, you have been through so much and now this. What an absolute pain for you. I really hope you get rescheduled soon x

Samantha Moss June 7, 2023 - 11:25 pm

Oh Caz, this is just horrific. I’m so sorry. I know how much effort goes into preparing for surgery both physically and mentally and the cancellation roller-coaster is something you definitely don’t need. Sending you lots of love xx 😘

Annie June 7, 2023 - 11:27 pm

Oh, dear Caz! How awful! Hope this gets straightened out asap!

Carolyn Page June 8, 2023 - 12:48 am

No words, Caz – just a big hug to let you know you are in my thoughts….

Nancy Homlitas June 8, 2023 - 12:55 am

This must be very disheartening for you, but please don’t lose hope. Maybe, unbeknownst to you, things will eventually work out sooner and better than expected.

Cindy Georgakas June 8, 2023 - 6:04 am

Sorry I missed the last post Caz but then maybe, you’re glad some of us did. I’m really sorry to hear that. Maybe it’s a sign you need more time.. Take care through it all my friend! ❣️

Animalcouriers June 8, 2023 - 8:51 am

Incredibly disappointing for you ☹️

Despite Pain June 8, 2023 - 1:41 pm

Oh Caz, I can’t believe what I’m reading. This is just so unfair. Sorry, I am lost for words. I hope this gets sorted soon and you don’t have to wait much longer.

Lulu: “We’re very sorry to hear this! We didn’t see the previous post but we know how it is to get all mentally prepared for something like surgery and then just have it yanked out from under you.”
Charlee: “We hope the political BS gets resolved and your surgery gets rescheduled soon!”
Oona: “If you require the services of a ninja, just let Oona know.”
Java Bean: “What use would a ninja be in this kind of situation?”

James Viscosi June 8, 2023 - 3:52 pm

That really does suck. Surgery is definitely one of those things you want to just get done once you’re ready. I hope the situation is resolved soon so it can move forward. I also do advise taking Oona up on her offer of ninja services, as that kitten definitely knows how to get things done.

Prepare yourself again!!

Michele Anderson June 9, 2023 - 1:52 am

I’m so sorry, Caz.

Greg Dennison June 9, 2023 - 7:03 am

Ugh… I’m sorry

The Back Garden Naturalist June 9, 2023 - 1:28 pm

Oh bless you, I’m so sorry to hear that Caz. Thinking of you & hope the hospital sorts itself out & you don’t have to wait to long.

Kit Dunsmore June 9, 2023 - 4:16 pm

What a complete an utter drag/ It’s hard enough dealing with chronic issues without having the medical world fail you in such a spectacular way. I hope you get things sorted out quickly and that the surgery still happens.

April Barcalow June 9, 2023 - 7:40 pm

I’m so sorry. I can’t imagine how discouraging this must have been, especially when you were so close to having it done. Healthcare itself is sometimes the hardest part of coping with chronic illness! I hope the procedure does get back on the books soon, but I especially hope you feel a sense of peace and renewed strength in the midst of more waiting.

Blanca June 9, 2023 - 7:58 pm

Oh Caz, I’m so sorry to hear this, I just hope they give you a new date soon. This must be such a big inconvenience, just to use a kind word. It does not surprise me you are feeling angry and disheartened.

Smelly Socks and Garden Peas June 12, 2023 - 4:45 pm

Buggeration as my mum would say. Can we do anything to help? Signing petitions to support your surgeon? Anything at all? Sending hugs and all my spare endorphins. Just keep swimming love, Smell xx

Ali Grimshaw June 13, 2023 - 3:36 am

I am so very sorry to hear this. Hang in there.

Belladonna June 14, 2023 - 5:24 pm

I am so sorry!!!!!!!!!

Lindsay June 20, 2023 - 3:22 am

Oh, Caz! That must be so frustrating! I’m so sorry.

To echo everyone else here, I’m so sorry, Caz. How disheartening. That sucks. While I hope the matter resolves itself for you soon, life doesn’t seem to be offering you that break. Either way, my heart is with you in your frustrations and your struggles. I’m thinking of you and I’m hoping today holds at least a few genuine smiles and moments of brightness amongst the frustration.

Stella June 26, 2023 - 5:08 pm

I am sorry… I know how frustrating that is. I hope it gets rescheduled for you soon and you get it over and done.

Wendy June 26, 2023 - 8:59 pm

You are right, what a shit show!!
This pissed me off to no extent!
I did read your previous post, I was hoping so much that it would help.
Now another delay, or worse.
I’m tempted to say, don’t give up hope.
A doctor once told me to never give up hope.
Since it came from that doctor, it did make me feel better.
But I can’t instill that hope, but I sure want to.
I can say, as a practitioner of mindfulness (well I try), to remember, the future is not written.
The past is gone, I know it’s very hard to not look back, I haven’t learned that one yet, but I admit I’m better at it and it does help. I had some pretty devastating stuff in my past too.
and now I’m trying so hard to help these damn migraines. (cannot compare to you, I’m just at my wits end about it)
I too have said, I’m not sure I can do this any more….but what choice to I have?
I can’t give up. I just can’t. I have to keep trying. And hoping.
I adore you.
You have helped me so many times, I wish I could help you now.
Healing thoughts to you. (I know that sounds trite, but I do mean it)
love, wendy

Silver Screenings July 11, 2023 - 3:41 am

Oh no!! So sorry to hear this news. And there still isn’t any word on a possible new date?

I can’t imagine how frustrating this must be. I really hope the situation will turn around.

Jenny August 4, 2023 - 9:54 pm

I’m so sorry that you’ve been dealing with this Caz, you are right and it’s a complete shit show.. I know you’ve been waiting for such a long time and to be let down again must be so disheartening. I can only imagine how you feel, I’m so sorry. And I’m so sorry that I’m also, as usual, “out of the loop” – I’ve been pretty rubbish at both blogging and reading blogs so I’m sorry if I’ve missed anything about whether you have a new date? I hope so lovely xx
