I was taken into hosp on Sat evening as I couldnt control my pain. After lots of entonox, oramorph and tramadol, eventually I was comfy and went home at 4 am with instructions to ring my consultants secretary. and tell them what happened and could I move up the list.Eventually got hold of the temporary secretary ( the proper one was off sick and left her answerpone on saying it was July 25th! - I had to do some detective work to get to her temporary replacement)
I told her about the hospital trip and asked how far I was on the list... oh, she said you wont be on it yet.. you have only been waiting 14 weeks and the list is 40 weeks... yes !! 40 weeks!!!! I was amazed when originally i was told 6 months or 24 weeks but 40???!!! It will be next spring before Im seen. Not sure how im going to make it that long as im detriorating . Just have to suck it up im suppose.... and my sister wonders why Im saying the the NHS wasnt designed for this number of patients..
I am in the Midlans with surgery in Coventry... Surely its not this bad elswhere ?
