After years of being told I had simply had very bad indigestion I was finally scanned for gallstones in August. I was told my results by my GP in August, which confirmed I have 2 large stones in my gallbladder and a letter was sent to Crosshouse hospital (Ayrshire and Arran) so I could discuss further treatment with a surgeon.
I waited and waited and heard nothing, finally I went back to my GP at 15 weeks and they called the hospital on my behalf. My doctor was told the waiting list is currently 20 weeks though they will call me if a cancellation arises.
However we are at 17 weeks today and I have still heard nothing from Crosshouse hospital regarding an appointment which I would have expected by now if the waiting list is 20 weeks and to be honest I am very upset as the pain I suffer from the stones is extremely painful and is effecting my ability to carry out day to day tasks.
