Last week I met with my consultant who after looking at my ultra sound scans, x-rays and numerous blood tests decided he wanted to remove my gallbladder and place me on the urgent 4-6 week waiting list. So this week I went for my pre-op assessment.
The nurse told after doing all the tests I can't yet be placed on the waiting list due to my high BP. Till this week I've never evening know I had high BP. So they've referred me back to my GP to monitor and try and manage the high BP before they'll put me on the list.
Has anyone else or is anyone else suffering from high BP who is on the waiting list and if so how did you manage it, anything other than more exercise, less fat to help it.
Just feel a little deflated that after all this time of being in pain every single day for nearly a year this one hurdle is now stopping me from potentially being pain/symptom free.
