Is it any wonder that I despise the tight-lipped, tight-arsed medical profession ?

Before I had my cataract operations
I was given very little information about the consequences,
and, of course, not about the possibility
of the gradual deterioration of my sight
due to posterior capsule opacification.
Depressing.
Depressing too that
when I had my broken hip replaced,
all was triumphant optimism: no mention of the insidious risk
of post-operative depression
which is particularly common in fit people living alone,
and who have difficulty reading because of PCO.
