More pain ahead

First, I would like to thank the Citizen for taking an interest in my plight (Hip replacement can’t come fast enough for local couple). You were the only ones that did.

We have heard absolutely nothing from Premier John Horgan and nothing from Health Minister Adrian Dix.

Secondly, I would like to thank Citizen readers for their kind words of encouragement.

I phoned my surgeon's office last week as I had been told by the nurse to phone in the middle of the month as that is when they are advised by the hospital if the OR will be opening in the next month for elective surgeries.

I was told then that there will be no elective surgeries in May.

So for all of us who are suffering with pain, we will suffer for at least another six weeks. 

Fingers crossed for June.

We will all remember this pain come election time.
