My operation was performed in March by a fantastic team.
On my discharge notes, it said that I needed a check up re my cancer, in 2 months time, May.
No notification came in May, so I rang the Appointments office 3 times during the next few weeks. Every time I was told that my name was on the list.
Eventually I went to see my GP who contacted the hospital and an appointment was then sent.
I have been worried all the time since March to see what the biopsy result is (OK I am pleased to say)
Surely there is a better way of coordinating appointments than the current system? The worry I have been through is unforgettable.
