    I paid for it myself so had no real waiting time.

    I flew to Birmingham on Sunday , had the op on Monday , and flew home on Tuesday.

    I was far more straight forward than I had thought and nothing to worry about at all.

    I'm feeling fine now 1 week later, just tired which is to be expected.

    Best of luck with your journey
