"Waiting times"

About: Wishaw General Hospital

(as the patient),

Ive been suffering from constant pain in my right kidney and groin since November, tests showed no infection, and normal kidney function. My doctor referred me for a CT scan in December and I have still not heard anything! Maybe I'm being impatient as I'm not normally ill, but as an active person both in and out of work, and now been off my work for 5weeks, and unable to exercise, this is having a huge effect on my life.
