"Hospitalised with kidney infection."

About: Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust

Hospitalised for one week. Was very well looked arts by very caring staff. However I have now been waiting 19 weeks for a prostate op. I was initially told 6/7 weeks to op. Then 6/12 weeks. Then 12 weeks. Then possible August twice I have been told that the surgeon was on leave. Had pre op assessment in April.

Now getting rather fed up. I appreciate that emergencies can cause delays. But this is now beyond a joke.
