"Waiting a year for results of a scan"

About: The Royal London Hospital / Colorectal surgery

(as the patient),

I have had a very rare bowel condition since 15 years old, and I still have it now aged 39 nearly 40. I have had several ops during the years and have now been placed on a Professor Knowles books.

Since examining me I've had a CT scan and no result through. It's been over a year of non-stop contacting his secretary to an answering machine only... no replys, no letters, nothing.

I am fed up being promised ops i.e. colostomy and or ileostomy and feeling completely neglected via the NHS and Royal London Hospital.

I am going to seek help in suing both for the depression and anxiety it has caused both me and my family. I have two children and live in very small inappropriate flat and my illness just makes things for us even harder to bear.

I need my bowel and intestinal illnesses tended to, it's severely appalling.
