"Kidney stone"

About: Northwick Park Hospital

At the beginning of May , I was admitted with a 12mm kidney stone. A stent was incerted to ease the pain. I had three lithotripsy sessions , which didn't brake up the stone. I wax told that within three weeks I would have laser surgery to remove the stone. That was at the beginning of June. I have had to phone to get a pre op, and then a op date . Guess what earliest 6th a august and I am in pain from the stone and the stent. My treatment at the beginning was great , including the nursing staff at a& e and on dowland ward but I have been let down since by the system
