"Waiting and worried stiff"

About: City Hospital campus / General surgery

(as the patient),

Having waited for a month for an ultrasound scan, I've now been waiting a further nearly 5 weeks for the result and conclusions.

That's 2 months worried stiff with pains, sometimes excruciating, and feeling ill all the time. I can't eat normally either.

I feel like I'm simply a number, stuck in the system with no-one caring.
