I posted awhile ago but can no longer find the thread. Then I asked about experiences of having the above op. At the time I was concerned about laparoscopic surgery but now I see from a letter to my doctor that it will be open surgery. However, once again a list of possible complications are reiterated such as bleeding. Thrombosis, reoccurrence and chronic pain which is put at 10%. After a period to consider and reading positive posts from gransnetters I decided I might as well get it done and hopefully out of the way. I am now on the waiting list but having read the letter to the doctor and the mention of 10% chronic pain and being a worrier which is a problem I also have I am asking for some reassurance that all these warnings are now routine. In other words have you had recent surgery with any of these problems? Hoping for reassurance. Perhaps he has decided on open surgery as I am nearly 80.
