has anyone else waited along time for gallbladder removal? i was first diagnosed with gallstones in march 2015, they said that i need surgery then, and that if i have any pain, to return to a&e, i have been to a&e many times, just to be sent home again, i have heard nothing about surgery and assumed i was already on a waiting list, then i went to see my gp last year to ask if i could be transferred to a different hospital, only then did she mention that i needed to be referred, and wasnt already on a waiiting list, i finally went to see a consultant in december, who agreed to put me on waiting list, i had my pre op just after that, but havent heard anything about op still, so rang consultants secretary who said that i will probably be waiting for 12 months and it is taking so long as they have had a lot of emergencies, but at least i know now, its just getting ridiculous, the secretary did say if i get any new symptoms to go and see gp, or if pain gets really bad to go to a&e, but i cant imagine the pain getting any worse. sorry the post is so long, just feel really angry, and sick of feeling tired and being in pain and ill.
