I am awaiting surgery for a bilateral oopherectomy following diagnosis for an 8cm cyst. I have been having symptoms for over 12 months but actually didn't go to the doctors until the end of last year. I am 51 years old and post menopausal.
I suffer from bloating, stomach cramps, fatigue and nausea. I've lost over a stone in weight.
I've been told that the 18 week target time for urgent surgery is being exceeded by 30-40 weeks! That means I could be waiting for nearly a year. Not sure I can cope with the symptoms and anxiety for that long! It's impossible to get through on the hospital admissions phone line to ask for a date.
Just wondered if anyone else had to wait this long and how they managed their symptoms?
