"Urology Delays stressfull"

About: Worthing Hospital

My husband is a bladder cancer patient and up to this year has had excellent treatment , However in may after biopsy's we heard nothing until a appointment arrived for July .We were told cancer cells in situ and some bcg treatment would be given and a follow up biopsy six weeks later , follow up results were taken and are still not back even tho we were told we would hear on the day , we are now nearly in December , the stress and sleepless nights through the cancellations and lack of follow up from the dept is awful , This is six months has been hell, .
