After being rushed into hospial in November in agonising pain I was diagnosed with Gallstones. I was discharged without any info about how to control it (i found that out myself) and told i'd be seen in 12 weeks to discuss surgery.................17 weeks later I finally saw someone who I feel was uncompassionate and in some ways dismissive. I was told I'd be put on a waiting list for surgery granted i'm down as urgent but there is no guarantee it will be anytime soon. I feel wholly let down.......i have a 5 month old daughter who i cannot care for when i'm having an attack. Yes i am overweight but I have lost loads but have been stuck on the 5 same meals since november. In West Yorkshire I know someone who was diagnosed and treated (given surgery) within 8 weeks!!!
