Anything else?

I had been suffering with flank pain after a kidney infection in Oct , and a scan in November seemed to reveal gall stones...I then got an appointment to see the surgeon in Dec to decide what way to proceed..I met with the surgeon today and have been advised an operation is needed and will place me on his list for which waiting time is approx 8 to 10 weeks,I am really suffering And hope to get a cancellation before this waiting time... But my experience has been fine and can't wait when I no longer feel sick, with pain and weakness from unable to eat normally... James cook hospital are doing just fine.
