"I'm not on the waiting list"

About: New Victoria Hospital (Glasgow) Southern General Hospital / General Surgery

(as the patient),

Pre assessment on the 24th of july in Southern General Glasgow.

I was told surgery would take place at the new victoria hospital in glasgow no longer than 8 weeks. Now the date is 30/10/12 and I’ve been told I am not on waiting list & never have been on. 140mg of m. s. t 2 times a day and pain is got to a point that i no longer want to live as i am that low over it. I can’t get to talk to my doctors at the hospital about it
