I had cubital tunnel in my right (non dominant arm).
I had all the tests (lovely electrified needles stuck between my fingers) and professionally translated in a private hospital in Switzerland.
I didnt like the surgeon. He wanted to move the entire nerve under a local and he looked like a fucking hobo.
I left Como at about 6am, no direct flights so had to go from Linate to Brussels to Manchester. I arrived on time for my mid day appointment.
He said it was important that they do the op ASAP because damage to the never was a possibility. I had all my tests there and translated but he wanted his own Dr to conduct the tests.
Oh, whatever, understandable, When can they be done?
He is on holiday for 2 weeks.
6 FUCKING HOURS AGO I WAS IN FUCKING MILAN.
Threatened to sue the insurance company based on the "we need to operate ASAP or there may be permeant nerve damage"
3 days later......I had the operation.
