You can't do anything apart from wait. Many people have to wait longer than 4 months for their viva, so you aren't the only one to be in this position. You sound a bit arrogant and dramatic - your life isn't ruined because your viva has been postponed for ~3 more weeks.

I understand your frustration but it is just one of those things. Use the 3 weeks to do some fun relaxing things and then just refresh on your thesis a day or two before. While it is unfortunate that your viva is delayed due to someone being unwell, you might also try and extend to them some understanding!

Sorry to hear this. Unfortunately, people do get sick. I can appreciate how frustrating this is, but I agree with Tudor Queen, you can use this time well, and could see it as a gift, because imagine all the pressure and stress you've been through, you can now release some of that by relaxation, exercise, and have additional time to go over your thesis. If you want, you could even look for typos and send a list to examiners before-hand or have it with you in the viva, that looks good to them.

Considering the current state of things you are reacting inappropriately. A delay of three weeks is hardly the end of the world.

It's also a shame that in the current climate, the original poster has not shown the slightest sign of care that her examiner could have contracted a potentially fatal virus.

Some people.......sheesh.

pm133 never fails to say what we are all thinking... :D

But giving the benefit of the doubt, PhD and viva stress can be immense and could cause someone to be less considerate than they might normally be.
