I really wish there was something that can be done to get you ladies into your doctors for the post op visits sooner. I have friends in Canada that have to wait months for appointments and followups due to the public health care system. Actually Canada's health care system was modeled after the UK's.

Keep calling and hopefully they can move you up in the system!

Hi angel,
Yes, I was told I should have a post op appointment at the Hosp.
I think form reading the replies form other UK sisters here that it depends on the Dr and on Hosp policy.
When I spoke to my Dr before dischage she said she would see me at the post appointment, but as the lists were a bit long I might have to wait about 8 or 9 weeks before I got to see her.

I think you should check with your GP on this one, mine was most insistant that I should see my Gynea, preferably before I went back to work (no chance of that as I'm suposed to return on Feb 3rd) You could also phone Gynea out patients and ask if they have you (or did have you and you didn't get the letter) down for an appointment. You can always ask to be put through to your Gynea's Secretary and ask her to talk to the Dr about a follow up appointment and if one is needed. (I have done this too before now)Just make sure you have your Hospital number to hand so you can reel that off at them and it makes it easyer for them to find you on the computer. (check appointment card for this number)

You should have had an appointment booked for you on discharge from the Hosp (my delay was from a mix up due to 4 other appointments being booked for me at the same time, so it got forgotten) This is to make sure you have healed properly and no other issues have arisen from the surgery, to discuss the pathology and if you may need further treatment for anything conected.

Confuzioncity, I hate the system that makes us wait for the appointments, I have absolutely no problem with the care and concern I receive once I finaly get to see someone. That part of the system is terrific and can't be beaten.
The appointments are so bad because the system is so overloaded with patients.
