About: Dewsbury & District Hospital

Had a problem for 3 years, went to Dewsbury hospital as thought it may be better than the rest, went there, got told to record the pain, did that went back and they suggested a laparoscopy, I agreed but ended up waiting months before I got an appointment, had the laparoscopy on the 4th March, got an appointment booked 6 weeks after for a check up and to discuss results. Started bleeding like a period the day of the laparoscopy bearing in mind I'd just come off from having a two week period, I waited for it to end but I'm still bleeding. About a month ago I got a letter saying I had an appointment at a completely different hospital to Dewsbury, on the 28th April went to the appointment and got told it had been cancelled, got home rung the appointment centre and they said I had an appointment in August, 6 months after my laparoscopy! Getting tired of being messed about by the hospital! This carries on I'm going to take it further!
