I saw my GP about persistent symptoms, was sent for a scan which showed gall stones. She didn't think it looked worth referring me to consultant but I said I really couldn't tolerate the restrictive diet and pain so I was referred.
Saw a consultant a few weeks later who suggested surgery. I was expected to be done at Hairmyers hospital within 12 weeks target time. Had a scope which showed stomach bacteria which needed treated.
Got a letter offering a date at Golden Jubilee waiting times hospital after 8 weeks and had the surgery last week.
I was delighted with the medical expertise and care at both hospitals. I really don't feel it could have been better. The single room and excellent staff at the Golden Jubilee made the experience much less of an ordeal. I am a week post surgery and making a quick virtually pain free recovery.
