"10 month wait for a gallbladder removal??"

About: Maidstone District General Hospital

not a review, more like, in looking for anwsers. Is it normal to wait 10 months for a gallbladder op? after 2 pancreatitis, 2 pre op assesments, infections and all sorts? every time I ask how long more my mother has to wait, i get told. "well, we all in the same boat, we all have to wait for something..." waiting lists are very long...
