Can someone please tell me why me husband has had his hip operation cancelled twice? The nurse at the seminar asked if everyone had a date for the op and everyone did. Why on earth do you give out dates for an op only to cancel them a few days before.? We have hardly left the house since May when my husband went on the list. We have cancelled two holidays and visits to stay with friends because he was on the cancellation list. So why have we wasted nearly six months and been let down . This is just not good enough. He is in a great deal of pain and he has even tried to get a private hospital bed to no avail because apparently there is an overload. Is this the patients fault or the hospital. I would dearly like to have an answer. His Dr has written twice asking for this to be expedited but to no avail. We will have to resort in asking our local MP or even contact the Advertiser newspaper to look into this dreadful state of affairs. I await a reply.
