I saw the clinical psychologist, and she was quite happy to say that I’m of sound mind and making the right choice, for the right reasons.
So I’ve had an appointment booked to see the surgeon up at the Berks since September now, appointment is for December 5th, so been quite happy to plod along, waiting to go there.
Fast forward to last Friday (4th Nov) when I came home from work, I’d received a letter from the hospital so I was a bit “oh”, opened it up and surprise surprise, they’d changed my appointment – given no reason, just said “it has been necessary to change your appointment from Dec 5th to FEBRUARY 20th 2017”!!
As you can tell, I wasn’t best pleased at having to wait another 4 months to see the surgeon, I rang up his secretary to find out what the hell was going on and got told “I’m sorry, I don’t know why this has been changed” thankfully, she has managed to changed the February appointment to November 30th, so I don’t quite get why they couldn’t have done that in the first place.
But if there is no real reason for appointment changes, then this means it could possibly go on a lot more, unnecessarily.
Either way, I’m still not officially sorted, as when I go to see this surgeon, I’ll have to be re-referred to the other surgeon who would do the op, so god knows how long that’ll take.
On the plus side, I’ve got an appointment in May to see the oncologist for an annual check up – had to chase for one this year!!
I know this is just a moaning blog, but I’m getting pretty sick of being passed around from pillar to post, so I have now escalated it to the PAL’s department at the hospital as it shouldn’t take this long at all!
