My husband had his kidney stone removed last year which was 15mm large and it took a long time to get the appointment and trying to get an op date. I had to do lot of chasing up. We had pain management visits to u ward and then sent home again. My husband was on all the meds you can have to try and stop the pain but it was getting worse.
That was in May last year. Now it's all started again and my husband's pain started again in November last year and now we are still waiting on news about what's going to happen next. In the meantime he is back on meds and the pain is getting worse.
Still no news. We ring up but we have to wait for the surgeon to see his notes which must be on the other side of the world because it has been over a month now since he had a urogram. He is getting depressed and said he would take knife to his side and do it himself.
Also they don't take into consideration that people have jobs and don't get sick pay. I tried to bring forward an appointment which is in March just to speak to the consultant. I was told by the appointments clerk this morning that she can't bring the appointment forward and I have to speak to the secretary. She seems to be getting shirty with us. She obviously doesn't know what pain is like, lucky her.
