I've recently been out on the waiting list and have my date for my second surgery (eek! ). But I'm feeling a little uneasy for a few different reasons.
I had an awful experience for my first surgery, and I had a horrible/uncaring consultant/surgeon while I was with that hospital that my current hospital thinks may have added to my current pain. Needless to say, it's left me with trauma surrounding my surgery.
To combat this, I wanted to do as much research as possible for the surgeon who is doing my up coming surgery at the new hospital I'm at which is meant to have a really good endometriosis bit. However, I tried searching on the hospitals Web page, and googling surgeons name but I found nothing.
So I emailed the hospital gyne teams receptionist, politely requesting information/links. And after nearly a week of waiting I got this as a reply:
Mr. Gallagher is a Locum Consultant here. All I can tell you is that he is a very capable surgeon.
And... I just dunno, I just feel like this isn't good enough? But I don't know if that's just my own anxiety coming towards the surface. I've seen lots of doctor wepages/review pages for lots of different hospitals all over the country(I'm UK based). The hospital I'm with has lots of surgeons and consultants webpages on their site, other than this person's? And it's just sent my anxiety through the roof and I'm not sure how to find any information about them.
Has anyone got any tips or suggestions on how to find information regarding this surgeon?
Thank you all, and I hope everyone's doing well!
