"Gallstone removal waiting time"

About: Warrington Hospital

Was referred by GP 5 weeks ago with gallstones that are causing problems with my liver & was kept in hospital 5 days, then sent home to wait for their urgent removal, I am still waiting despite being in agony ever since & have been informed I will be like this for at least 5 more weeks, I can't eat properly, or go to work, or care for my children alone & am on 21 tablets a day for pain. Urgent????, I feel neglected & very upset & angry by the way I've been treated!!!!
