Hi I have just signed up . Brief history . I was diagnosed over a year ago usual gallstones need a operation urgent is my consultant's words not mine as I had been hospitalized several times . The pain as you all know is unbearable ,but after a year of agony I am now taking action . There is only one thing for me anyway is a no or extremely low fat diet . Bland but it is working .At least there is no pain .I have lost a stone (unwanted but no choice ) I have to get back to work .
Anyway I wont rant too much . Seen my consultant again today (last time November) . I was shocked I did not recognise him . He looked exhausted and ill. Infact he looked worse than me . After a quick 5 minute consult I am more confused but felt so sorry for him . What is the system doing to the staff. Sad to see. Anyway I still have gallstones still waiting . I need another scan just so they can be sure . Apart from that everything was fine ! im shocked but believe he is delaying simply because the NHS cannot cope or even catch up since Christmas . But what can I do . I apologise if my message is somewhat confessed that's how I feel . I have found this forum which will help I am sure
