I had my gallbladder removed on the 21/05/13 as a daycase, unfortunately I did not recover well and after a few weeks my GP sent me for an ultrasound, during this a large cyst was discovered on one of my ovaries, leading to a referral to a consultant who recommended I have a hysterectomy. he requested a CT scan which I had on the 23/06, on the 24/06 the nurse phoned me to say that something had been found on my kidney and adrenal gland, and I needed to have a further CT scan and ultrasound followed by an MRI scan, I was terrified by the speed that all this happened and because of family history(Dad , died from kidney cancer) I spent two weeks falling to pieces, during all of this, I could not have asked for more understanding and support than I got from all departments I dealt with , receptionists, secretaries, all staff in X-ray department, nurses, etc,everyone I met or spoke to on the phone was so kind.. Thankfully all was ok with my kidney, and I had my hysterectomy on the 19/08/13, again, the care given to me on ward 12 was fantastic. Thank you all very much .
