My husband was due to go into hospital for a prostrate operation, he is 74 yrs old and is desperate to have knee replacement surgery but he has been advised by the orthopeadic consultant he saw that is advisable to have his prostrate operation first to avoid infection (from his superpubic catheter) & rejection of replacement knees hence its urgent to get the prostrate operation asap. We were given no explanation as to why the operation has been cancelled or another date offered.so how long must he wait for another appointment?
If its not possible for him to have the operation at the Pilgrim could he be given a date somewhere else? ? He is fast coming to the conclusion that he is being given the run around and being an OAP that he doesn't matter.....would appreciate your comments asap (and another appointment for his operation preferably asap in other words during next couple of weeks.
