Posted by dissapointed (as ),
my 8yr old son has a cyst on his eyelid since september 2011. We finally got refered in december , the cyst ruptured and he has had 4 courses of antibioctics in the last 5 months. He is left with an unsightly sized lump that constantly scabs and regrows.
He has had a consultation in jan 2012 and is waiting for removal still. He is days away from breeching 18weeks and have been told probably 20 weeks, which i also think wont happen as i would like to to think i would of had an admission date by now if its going to happen in 2weeks time??
Preassement appointments seem to have been messed up.
Staff communication between departments is shocking in my experience.
No one seems to have looked into alternitive options for treatment we feel like we are just expected to wait as long as it takes.
