Anaesthetic person because i can't spell their proper title! Anyway, I'm at hospital at 2.30 today for that appointment and i can't wait! I've been waiting to get this appointment over and done with, as my problem is i've had 4 major spinal surgeries and I hate ANYONE touching my back. I've had 16 years with the same surgeon and have implicit trust with him. Even he doesn't want other consultants touching my back. I've been really apprehensive about having the spinal block for my section, for that reason. So i get to meet the head of the team today, get my questions out the way and introduce them to my bionic spine! titanium implants, screws and bone grafts - with a 'get your needles past that lot'
