Teresa's going back to hospital tomorrow.

Posted , 4 users are following.

Please don't panic,there are no problems.This is just meant to be an 8-10 week follow up appointment from last Oct for the Gastroenterology clinic.To cut a long story i went there last Oct as i have a history of IBS and i was getting more stomach pains than normal.I had already had an ultrasound scan before i saw the consultant and because it already showed up fibroids i was then referred to Gynae.I had a letter outof the blue yesterday for an appointment next month which i had to change.when i phoned earlier i got offered a cancellation one for tomorrow. Because they deal with hernias and they couldn't operate at the same time as my hysterectomy i would like like it checked.My Dr wanted to leave it but this is my chance and i am going to take it.

      Sorry messed this one up. Meant to say i would feel more comfortable working a few more weeks before i took any more sick leave.They probably wouldn't operate still so close to my hysterectomy op date.

      Hi Nikki,

      I was confused rather than shocked as i didn't know what the appointnent was for.It is a follow up appointnent from when i was referred last Oct because of my other stomach problems.I just feel that i asked my dr to refer me again for my hernia and she wanted to leave it ,that i will now have this follow up and mention it at the same time.Why not?

      Hope you are ok?

      Yes Teresa make sure you do mention the hernia hope all works out for. I know what it's like. I have had to major surgeries in the last five years they are no fun and it seems to take longer to get over them. All the best. I hate ironing too.
