Mixed messages/emotions

Hi all I am just wondering if anyone else has had mixed information from the hospital - I went for my appointment around 2 weeks ago - she said I probably have endo - please read my previous post for info -- so referred me for a lap - however I called admissions yday to have a rough date and they told me June time when bearing in mind they also said 'you have been put to the top of the list' she explained I could go private - which will may have to be an option however she said I could book an appointment with my GP to speed things up which I did today - and just now I have come home to a letter saying I got my pre lap assessment on Monday 15th Dec - how long is the wait between the assessment and the lap? I'm really confused and the pain is unbearable - please can someone advise - thank you so much ladies xxxxx

  • Hi! Usually your pre op is within a week before your lap so it might be soon! X

  • Mine was a week before my op too. I got a cancellation place, had mine on Saturday. I was referred for a lap in June though so it did take a while. Good luck x

  • I am waiting between pre op and op still don't have a date. I had my specialist appointment back in june. I had my pre op about 4 weeks ago and still have heard no date. When I enquired about waiting times, I was told the waiting list for a lap in my area was 18 weeks, I am well over 18 weeks.

    I feel your pain totally x x x
