What could be improved

it was discovered at my 20 weeks scan that i had a large (9cm) ovarian cyst. it wa continuously monitored through my pregnancy and everyone was very helpful. though, 4 weeks after i had my little girl i was sent for a re-scan which confirmed the cyst was still there and infact a little bigger, i was told i would need a minor operation and was sent on my way and told to "wait to hear" from the hospital, weeks and weeks went by with no word so i phoned them myself only to be told i would have to go to the gp and arange another scan myself! so all the trauma of endless scans and worrying about my baby, only for them to fob me off!!! im disgusted! and when i have my next baby i am asking to be refered to the hospital in portsmouth
