On 22/9/14 I had a sigmoidoscopy , I had a colonoscopy on 4/10/14 , several biopsies were taken.When I was discharged on 4/10/14 I was told I would receive an appointment for clinic when all my test results including the histology would be discussed with me and appropriate treatment commenced. It is now four weeks on and I have no appointment and therefore no results. After three weeks I contacted the Gastro Unit, the clerical staff there were unable/unwilling to help me, ignoring that I had been told I would get an appointment, and telling me to contact my GP, which I did, but they had no more information than I had. After looking at these reviews I contacted the PALS and a very helpful lady made inquiries on my behalf, she called me back as promised. She told me that she had spoken to the consultants secretary and been told that I would be contacted within a day or two, there has been no contact. I have been ill now since 6/8/14 my GP has done her best but without a differential diagnosis she cannot prescribe condition specific treatment. I find this waiting unacceptable , my symptoms continue unabated and my level of anxiety increases. Why am I still waiting, when will I receive the help and treatment I need????
