"Fobbed off!"

About: Warrington Hospital

Had a TURP on the 20th June. Sent home on 23rd with yet another damn catheter installed. Was told by staff that it would only be in a few days and would be out the following week. Not the case. Having quite a lot of pain and discomfort. Phoned to find out date of appointment on 27th and was told that there are no appointments until after 12th July and that would be at Halton - rubbish hospital almost as bad as Warrington.

Anyone else going in for this op, don't let them fob you off. They send you home far too soon.
