    Thank you both – glad it was helpful Zoz, and gosh, your pre-op now, wow!! Actually think it will work out well time wise as am away at the end of July for a 2 wk house-sit, so will come back and start milk diet and then roll on good times!!

    Hiya Donna

    Sorry to hear you are having such a frustrating time of it.

    Which hospital are you dealing with? Are you NHS? This isn’t just me being nosey, it makes s differnce to your overall experience and how we can all get together to help you.

    Try to keep things in perspective and be aware that hospitals deal with thousands of people daily so things tend not to move too quickly. I know that doesn’t help you when you are feeling so down but a positive mental attitude can help with the inevitable waiting 🙁

    Hope you keep in touch and get some good news soon.

    I had a similar situation a few years back when my daughter’s ‘urgent’ referral from acute admissions at St Thomas’ to Urology at Guy’s went astray. In the end I asked the name of the secretary to the receiving (or not receiving) Doctor and once I had established a personal connection with them they found it at the bottom of the in tray of someone away for 3 weeks still with ‘urgent’ attached. I must admit I wondered what would have happened had I not been English speaking assertive and educated – no hope. So keep nagging, if you are anywhere near go in person and sort it out – even better than phoning. Good luck.

    Sorry to hear that Donna, but I loved your little man banging his head against the wall – how clever!! Waiting is so frustrating isn’t it, you gear yourself up to ring and try to find out what is happening and end up none the wiser. I think the worst part is the lack of control you feel. Just try to calmly persue the matter, asking what happens next for you, emphasising you do not want to delay the surgery. best wishes.

    Hi Donna,

    Frustrated? Its all a question of being persistant sometimes….
    I am sure no one is fobbing you off, just trying to understand any complications I expect, this is major surgery rememebr and no surgeon would take unecessary risks with peoples lives.

    If their is a chance of any complications concerning medical conditions it has to be looked into.
    Hopefully, they will get things sorted and at least have the decency to keep you informed….
    I know chasing the pen pushers is so very frustrating when all you want to do is get to the starting line……

    Your ready in your mind I expect, keen as mustard and raring to go….. champing at the bit…
    So use some of that energy to progress things yourself…

    Phone, write, mail, text…do everything you can in being persistant but polite 🙂

    Keep your head… banging it against walls hurts….lol..

    Chin up…. and hopefully some good news for you soon..

    All the best
