I am on a six to nine month waiting list for a laparoscopic cholecystectomy under general anaesthetic as day surgery. I am in almost constant discomfort/pain and I do not know how I can cope for this long. I have some cocodamol for the pain, which I take when my pain is too bad, but that really makes me feel fuzzy and ill. I just went to see my GP and he has prescribed Biscopan and Codeine, and suggested I ring a private hospital to get a quote for surgery privately. Rang the Parkway and they quoted £5406 for a two night stay, and they also said there is no way they would do this op as day surgery. Well, there is no way I can afford that, so it looks like a long wait. My GP said I should expect the wait could be longer than nine months. So frustrating. Any suggestions?
