Initially visited GP (Charlton Medical) in January/February, was seen and sent home with no diagnoses.
Visited GP again 2 weeks later as pain was worse, vague diagnoses and call for an ultrasound to confirm hernia.
Awaiting appointment. Visited Princess Royal Hospital for scan. Waited again for referral back to GP, then I was referred for surgery via TRAQS.
Had to await pre-op appointment then surgery appointment! ! Finally! Just had surgery, a total time over about 5 months.
