Gallstones the operation is keyhole, should be back by now

Had same back on feet for that Have you other problems


Sorry to hear no support from GP.

I know how it feels I have been told the waiting list is fourteen to sixteen weeks unless I go private (Hmm). I often say I wouldn't wish it on anyone, but maybe if they had some experience of the pain etc they may not be so dismissive .

Hope you have had your op by now, at least they should then give you your sick note.


Mine was ignored by NHS suspect, Low Priority Policy, so when had private gastric band in Belgium paid for it to be done at same time .

The surgeon said it was sediment that if had got into system could be extremely dangerous .I wonder was it this that had caused the cardiac arrest ?
