I was originally booked in for an elective Ceaserian for this morning at the RBWH and cancelled it about 5 weeks ago to try for a VBAC (which was fully supported by the ob) . I have signed paperwork stating that he's happy for me to go ahead with trying. Three weeks ago I told them again, I'm not doing the elective but will go VBAC again.. Come Wednesday I get a call saying i HAVE to come in and see the anethetist on Thursday and I ask what for, and the lady says ''because you're booked in for the elective C''... um no i'm not, i cancelled it weeks ago! She insists to come in anyway, so I do, and I knew it would be a waste of time. I get there and ask why I need to see one and she says ''um, I don't know. (great answer!) Probably if you're obese or have a back problem'''... No i'm not fat/obese nor do I have a back problem.. so they get me to see her anyway. I repeat to about 5 different people I am NOT going ahead with the Elective.. they say ok, it's noted. Come Friday morning and another lady rings to ask me something about Monday's elective, AAARGH - I'M NOT HAVING IT!!!!. She rings me later in the arvo to ask me another question, and I repeat again i'm not having it, for gods sake, get it right!!! She apologises and says ok it's noted.
Come this morning and I get an abusive call from the hospital about ''WHY AREN'T YOU HERE FOR THE ELECTIVE?""... WTH? What is wrong with these people, how HARD is it to understand I had CANCELLED THE DARN THING WEEKS AND WEEKS AGO!
