I first arrived at The new building June 24th 2014 7am for an operation id been waiting 2 years for after waiting 2 hours to be called in the small medi room. I finally went through and signed consent form, another hour had passed before I seen The surgeon and he's marked me and told me what he was going to do 30 minutes later he came back and told me the machine had broken and they could wait an hour for the little piece to come or send me home so they sent me home. My new date was 24th July so I arrived back at the new building for 7am like last time I was seen by the nurse signed the consent form and had bloods taken. The surgeon came and seen me explained about the operation and I was told id be going down about 11/12 so I was placed in a gown to get ready and taken my pre meds.time had gone and it was now 1:30 I was told to drink some water till 2:30 which I waited 30 minutes to get and that id be now going down at 3. At 3pm the surgeon had come round to see me and to tell me that they've cancelled again the second time it had been cancelled when I've taken the gown off I am now covered in small lumps which look like bites that I didn't have before I arrived .I'm a 17year old girl who had been waiting 2 years for this operation that would change my life now having to wait again for a new date!
