"Bowel problems"

About: Northern General Hospital / Colorectal surgery

(as the patient),

Although the staff at the northern seem to care. The time limit when you're suffering severe problems is terrible I've suffered approx 10 years and have had many surgery so to combat this but there needs to be a listening ear when things get so bad instead of waiting for an eternity to get treatment! ! !
