In the past I have been in hospital on several occasions for kidney stones & a cancerous kidney tumer partial right nafrectomy . My experience of Leicester General in the past has been exelent in every area of care . But unfortunately I feel very let down by the nhs I've been waiting for 5 months for a hysterectomy due to many many years of suffering reoccurring overian cysts, bulky fibroids & very heavy periods & abdomen pain all through the month I've been in hospital twice in the last 2 months,the first time for severe abdominal pain uterus infection & exactly the same thing second time although to start with I was sent to urology again for kidneys but I told them it was gyne & they agreed but gyne doctor said I had gastro enteritis which is a joke just waisting nhs money instead of getting me sorted out & I'm still waiting with no date in sight. The consultant I saw last year was very nice made me feel confident about having major surgery yet again,but now I've been told that it won't even be him now doing the opp ! I saw the anesthetist last year as well as I'm extremely difficult to canulate & take blood from & that's it been waiting for the post man every day for the last 5 months!
