LAPAROSCOPY

Hey,

I was just wondering wether anyone could help me on how long they had to wait for their laparoscopy on the NHS? I went today to see the gynaecologist and they put me on the list but I would like to know how long others had to wait? Thank you

Depends where you are - I waited 7 weeks from seeing gynae to first lap (this was with general gynae). Was then referred on to a bsge centre where I waited 16 weeks from seeing doc to first lap with them and then 18 weeks to second.

I paid to go private for the consult and then NHS for the lap and because I went private to start it only took 1 month to have the lap. It wasn't cheap but did help push things on. I also have private insurance which paid back half my costs.
