    It took me 6 weeks to meet with the surgeon and then another 3 months for the surgery. Just had it done today.

    It depends where in the country you are. After my MRI scan I waited 2 weeks to see the surgeon and another 8 weeks for the operation.

    Depends what country you're in and the length of the respective waiting lists. From start of my symptoms to the operation took 7 months, I'm in the UK. Now recovering and hoping to finally get my life back on track in a few weeks.
