"Waiting so desperately,causing depression:("

About: Charing Cross Hospital

Anything else?

Came into plastic sergery in October 2012, thinking I'm just here for a cousultation with one of the doctors,about a procedure to be done On my nose and cheek..

Only to realize that I'm here to have only the procedure/operation done on my nose that same day and no mention of my cheek by my GP referral to the clinic.

The service was amazing very friendly nurses and doctors .

Came back to the clinic in February 2013 after finally getting another referral from my GP for my cheek..

Having a rear autoimmune illness which have resulted in a significant contour deformity,hollowing of my right cheek.causing me significantly psychological distress with loss of confidence which is making me a recluse..

Came to the clinic in February 2013 have a 30-40min chat with one of the doctor who gave me so much hope.. Did before and after procedure photoes.

:) happy me.. Back home.. Happy me for several week.,checking the mail waiting for my Appointment letter (procedure date)..

Ive Told one of my friends I'm on the waiting list to have my fat transfer procedure done on my cheek very soon..

Then she said to me "sry this waiting list can take up to a year"

Omg.. I was :(

At my consultation everything was amazing except that I hnot been told approximately how long I have to wait for the procedure:(

Pls can someone help me with this..

I'm tired of being depress and hiding away.
