In August 2011 I had an operation due to having bowel cancer. I could not fault the service and aftercare I had at Good Hope hospital here in the West Midlands.
I have since been suffering with a hernia close to the site of where my temporary stoma was sighted. In February of this year I was due to have an operation, and after going through all the preliminaries including even being marked by the surgeon for the operation, I sat there in my gown and was told by hospital personnel that unfortunately they would have to cancel my operation as no bed would be available after my op. I was assured that within 48 hours I would be given a new appointment that would be within 28 days. To date NOTHING. Fobbed off comes to mind.
