    Perhaps they

    Discussing best way

    To operate . When I had

    My hysterectomy years

    Ago I had bikini cut

    Which I think normal if they

    Can't do vaginally (mine

    Was stubborn and did not want to com

    Out so had to be cut). Perhaps with the

    Position of your fibroid and

    Cyst they may think they

    Will have vertically cut. Once you on

    List probably be couple months

    Unless with all

    Your pain they put you further

    Up their waiting list. Good

    Luck hope sort you soon

      Hi June thanks for reply. I am getting frustrated as was told the hospital would write to me after mdt meeting to let me know what treatment I would receive. It has been 4 weeks but no letter. I rang last week and was told I need a mri scan. I have already had a ultra sound and ct scan . Also a blood test. I am worried why everything is taking  so long. My case was discussed on 3/7/14 but told no mri scan date had been fixed. Am I worrying for no reason?

      They so take  a while . I waited three weeks for my ct results and only got them because I rAng. I know it is difficult but try not to worry. Just keep pestering his secretary to see If she

      Has news .

      Probably notes awaiting someone to type them up x

    Hi raj, I too am in Leicester. My care plan also went to mdt for discussion (cyst removal, hysterectomy etc. ) was called in to see the consultant the week after. Already had ultra sound and CT scan, no MRI required. Op booked for next week. I would phone the clinic again they should be able to chase getting the MRI date for you or at least find out why you haven't got a date yet/ give you an idea when you may get one. I've found the staff at the General helpful especially when I needed the CT scan quickly so I wouldn't have to cancel the family holiday.
