'cus I couldn't be much worse than the ones they've already got.
So I get my hospital appointment through to see a consultant about my suspected hernia and waddaya know it was a complete waste of time.
I arrive half an hour early and they are an hour late seeing me. Then the conversation goes like this....
Geezer....So you've got a hernia?
Me....Well I was hoping that YOU would be able to tell ME
Geezer....Lets take a look then, hmmm, hmmm, please cough, please cough again, yes you have a hernia, please lie down on the couch
Geezer....hmmmm, please cough, please cough again, and again. You actually have 2 hernias
Me....bugger. How will this affect the birth?
Geezer....It shouldn't do
Me....Well both my midwife and doctor think it will, that is why I am here
Geezer....Well it might do
Geezer....I'll just go and check
10 minutes later when he returns Yeah it should be ok
Me....well what sort of hernia is it inguinal or femoral?
Geezer....erm, just let me check
Me....Doesn't that mean that there is a risk of developing a strangulated bowel during labour?
Me....and don't you think that might affect the birth?
so much for health proffesionals, I got better advise from google
