Who says the health service can't move quickly?
After prevaricating for 6 weeks over which treatment to have I receive a call from Michael Dusmet, surgeon at the Royal Brompton hospital. "I've been asked by the Royal Marsden to take the tumour out of your lung, what are you doing this afternoon?" he asked.
I liked his style but not wanting him to rush into things (and the fact that I didn't have my toothbrush on me) I settled for meeting him on Wednesday, with surgery scheduled for the following Tuesday 29th May.
This at least fitted in with my plans to visit York for the weekend and visit some old friends (yes Nigel and Jerry, you are old!). Might be the last beers I have for a while!
