I was referred by my gp to wishaw general for a scope having had return worrying symptoms given my previous medical history. I took the prep the day before which in it selfs is quite an ordeal for someone in their 70s.
Unfortunately I ate a slice of bread that night and when I got to wishaw I was told they would not carry out the procedure and it would have to be rescheduled. I accept that I had read the instruction wrongly and was anxious to receive another date.
My wife contacted the secretary to see when this would happen only to discover that no repeat appt was being organised in fact my wife and the secretary joked that I was the invisible man. The secretary was very helpful and tried to get a cancellation to no avail. My repeat appt is now scheduled for the end of September.
This distant date is causing me stress and anxiety worrying about the implication in delay of the investigation as well as worrying about taking the prep again. I really just want to get this done.
