THANK YOU WARD 112 AND WARD 102

BACK IN THE RIE

On Monday 1st March 21, I was admitted to Ward 102, the Cardio/thoracic ward at the Royal Infirmary Edinburgh (RIE).

I was in the RIE on this day for the pre-op work that I was needing for the surgery I was having the following day. The surgery that I had on Tuesday 2nd March was to remove the chest plate on the right hand side of my body. This chest plate was part of the chest rebuild I had after my right hand side of my rib cage was removed along with a massive tumour during life-threatening/life-saving surgery in October 2015.
