"Canceled surgery twice"
Posted by Sarah Hill
I went in to the QE last week and today for a scheduled operation which I had waited for since receiving results in April ( and being ill since February 14). After waiting for close to 5 hrs on both occasions in the admissions ward for my operation and having had all the preliminary post operative assessments and procedures with nurses and anaesthetist, On both occasion I was finally told at 5 o'clock after being nil by mouth for 11 hours that my operation was to be cancelled and given no further date or explanation as to what happens next.
At this point in time, I still do not have any idea when my operation will be rescheduled
I found the secretary(for my consulatnt) to of been unhelpful when I phoned last week, which adds to the cummulative affect i.e upset/dissatisfied and not sure how successful it will be phoning again tomorrow.
I am now in limbo with arrangements for work and childcare and have caused unnecessary inconvenience to a wide range of family friends and colleagues.
