"Surgery canceled twice"

About: St Richard's Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I had surgery scheduled - it was cancelled the day of the procedure. Had to wait months before another could be (my job makes it difficult) and now was due to have it tomorrow - and it was cancelled today. I just despair.
