I had my laparoscopy end of March, briefly told by nurse over the phone whilst I had a minor panic attack because I knew nothing that everything seemed alright and to just wait for the appointment, I was told that my doctor/surgeon would see me within 3 to 4 months.
My pain is less now, although I am taking 2 doses of Ibuprofen a day as well as taking my pill without breaks (from now on, taking a break was a horrendous mistake) and 2 buscopan at night when my bloating is worst. Still having constant lower back pain and lower right hip pain that often spread down my right thigh.
Today I got my appointment letter... I'm supposed to wait until just short of Halloween to see him. I've had no real confirmation of what has been done or what it could be and havent even had a follow up by anyone regarding if everything was alright after the surgery (which it luckily was.)
I don't want to wait another 5 months or so to find out what's gone on so I'm going to ring and see if I can get in earlier otherwise I'm going to ring a self referal clinic.
I'm beyond fed up with the NHS, and even then I had to go private to get a lap.
Did anyone else wait that long post-lap to be checked/reviewed/etc?
Thanks to everyone here for on going support, you're all amazing xx
