topic 4 My operation has been postponed! UPDATED!!!!

Post by Helen on Wed Aug 27, 2008 11:02 am

I was looking forward to getting it over and done with (solid cyst on ovary removed and reconstructive surgery on lady bits from childbirth) but also was dredding is as i havent been away from bethany for longer than an hour or so before. I was stressing how she'd cope without me.

Anyway, i have been on the waiting list for months and months and the gynaecologist (sp?) as literally just phoned me to tell me she doesnt do keyhole surgery and so i will have to be put on another consultants waiting list! I am not happy because the 2 times i have had to go see this gynoecologist she hasnt been there and i have had to see a consultant in her place. Why could i not have been told this the 2 times i have been?!!! Mad

So anyway she said that i would have another couple of months wait. Which to be honest i am not that bothered about because i dont have to leave bethany for another couple of months. its just the principle of the thing!

And i couldnt just have the reconstructive surgery - that would have to be on a minor surgery waiting list or done when i have keyhole!

:aww: Helen, I'm sure is for the best! Little longer to wait, but I feel its worth it; your princess will be lil bigger and you'll get key hole- what you want, what means less pain, quicker recovery and being sooner at home :aww:

I cant help but think it was fate as i really didnt think i was ready to leave baby so long. I moan to adam sometimes about how his life doesnt seem to have changed and he can still go out here there and everywhere and i'm with bethany 24/7 and cant do anything lol. But dont think i'd have it any other way Laughing Its my perogotive to have a moan isnt it! lol

Oh hun, what a pain.
At least you have more time to prepare yourselves. :bighug:
You certainly do have the right to moan, we have 2 and my hubby still goes out all the time. They don't seem to realise what we do. ( although i told him he can go out without me moaning if i can have a tattoo.....lol)
Oh well maybe its for the best hun.

I dont believe this! The waiting list place have rang today to confirm that the gyno woman doctor had sent them a letter that i was cancelling my operation. She wrote that i wished to be taken off the waiting list as i am still breastfeeding and will need to get re-referred by my GP and go through the whole procedure of seeing a consultant again!

That is not what the gyno woman discussed with me a few days ago! She simply told me that she would put me straight on the waiting list for another consultant and would be operated on with a few week!

I am not a happy bunny! I have been waiting for this opetation since january and now they have done this!

Feel like screaming! Evil or Very Mad

I am just so angry and upset.

The woman at the waiting lists place said as it was my choice to tell the surgeon i no longer want the procedure (which i didnt say at all) then they took me off the list as they are working towards reducing waiting list times.

In other words if they'd have transferred me to the other surgeons waiting list that my gyno said she would so i could have key hole then i would've been classed as waiting on the list for another few month. Therefore statistically the waiting list times would've gone up for the hospital stats iykwim? How bad is that!!!!

The woman at the waiting list place said she would find out what is going on and let me no. But i dont no what to do in the mean time? I dont no if i should go see my GP to get re-referred just in case? Then at least its done! I am soooooooo annoyed! Mad

I think the NHS has it in for me this week! I have just phoned my GP i spoke to a nurse at 4pm who said she would stand outside GP's room and as soon as next patient comes out she'll give her all the info and get her to ring me. 2 1/2 hours later still no call. Just rang them back - theres a message saying they're closed till Monday Mad
