I was up and in the shower by 5 am, got to the small hospital at my appointed 6:30 am, went back and got into the rear exposure gown, IV started, and then I waited...and waited...and waited.... so now it is 8:00 am and my surgeon comes to the bedside and says, "The air conditioning unit in the OR is not working and then something about the humidity..and I have to get back to Hilton Head Regional Hospital because I have other cases scheduled.. " Well, I am bummed. I really wanted to get this carpal tunnel thing done and over with. I am now awaiting a call for re-scheduling. I guess this has happened before at Coastal Carolina Hospital but of all the days it could happen it was just my miserable luck that today was another one.
Not sure what to think about the facility if these problems have happened before and not been properly addressed. I think I will opt for Hilton Head Regional if I am given a choice when we reschedule.
Anyway, hope everyone is having a peaceful pain free or tolerable evening.. best of health
