"Operation cancelled last minute"
Posted by Anonymous
I went in to the QE last week for a scheduled/planned operation which I had waited for since receiving results inFebruary. After waiting for close to 3 hrs in the admissions ward for my operation and having had all the preliminary post operative assessments and procedures, I was finally told that my operation was to be cancelled and given no further date or explanation as to what happens next. At this point in time, I still do not have any idea when my operation will be reschedule to, and consider that had I not been proactive and phoned up myself this week to make enquiries would have not received any update-as it stands I still remain without a date for my opertation which causes me some anxiety. I found the covering secretary(for my consulatnt) to of been unhelpful and abrupt, which adds to the cummulative affect i.e upset/dissatisfied.
