Minor operation

H had her microdiscectomy today.  It seemed to take a long time, but she's dodged the very small risk of tetraplegia: we have to wait a few days to find out how well it's worked.

While I was waiting, a trolley came round loaded to the gunnels with sweets, crisps and biscuits, on sale mainly to visitors.  Is this the NHS trying to ensure future business?

Update: I wasn't paying enough attention - the procedure was a foraminotomy not a microdiscectomy.  Which H points out means cutting a hole in a hole.
