I wondered if anyone else has looked at their NHS notes. I spent the better part of 2 years in pain and feeling horrible. The NHS did the scans and said I had the gallstones, but the consultant kept telling me he didn't think it was the gallstones causing the problem - that I just had heartburn (!!!!!) Finally after lying flat on my back and then on left side for 6 weeks (left side because I had horrible allergic reaction to painkillers and my right side covered in a horrible rash that was weeping and burned like on fire!) I went through the private insurance my husband has through his work to get the operation over and done with. I was in surgery and doc left my notes up and I saw that the referral letter she sent to the private hospital said that I wanted to opt for an elective operation. Sorry if I am being a bit silly - but IT WAS NOT LIKE I had my GB removed like some people get botox and I already was annoyed that they didn't take me seriously about the pain etc and to see that made my blood boil!
