I had my gallbladder removed in February (open surgery). They found it was cancerous so I had a liver resection five weeks later. Unfortunately, I had to wait until May for the histology results, even though I asked my allocated specialist nurse and my surgeons secretary to help. Normally the results should be available ten days later but for some reason (never explained) I had to wait seven long and anxious weeks.
I was due my six month check up tomorrow. I went for a CT scan ten days ago, but because the results have not been sent through to the relevant department, they have rung this evening and cancelled. I'm told it will be at least two weeks before I can have another appointment unless the scan results turn up in the morning- I have to ring to find out. I have had this appointment for six months and I feel very let down. There's no guarantee they won't cancel again for some reason. Meantime I'm left wondering if the cancer has returned.
I have already had procedures and scans postponed during my treatment and when I was admitted with jaundice last October I was told I'd have surgery that week, but I was discharged without any real explanation and waited another three and a half months.
In December, I found out by accident that I wasn't even on the waiting list!
Is this just me being unlucky?
