"Dilated pancreatic duct and cyst"

About: Princess Royal University Hospital (Orpington)

All staff very courteous and helpful. However when I saw the Consultant they told me what I already know! I thought I was going there for them to arrange an endoscopy. Apparently they havent discussed my case yet at the Multi Discipline Team meeting. My GP will go ballistic as they deliberately fast tracked me as there is a strong family history of pancreatic cancer. So time goes on and I'm worried witless. Still if the cyst is malignant I'll get my family to sue. No idea how long it will take for my next pointless appointment!
