I was first referred by my GP in late June 2012 to Raigmore with an abdominal mass and pain. I was subsequently diagnosed with a pedunculated uterine fibroid.
First scan was July 2012 yet I was only treated for my condition via uterine artery embolisation in February 2013 (!) which to my knowledge far exceeds the government treatment time guarantees.
I have essentially been housebound/off work/working reduced hours from home since the end of last July, yet my treatment was carried out with one overnight hospital stay and a couple of weeks recovery!
To me this is unacceptable.
