This is not B12 related (I have PA and Hypothyroidism) have recently been diagnosed with an Irreducible Lump/Cyst/Hernia above my belly button. The surgeon I saw was unable to say what it is and was very abrupt when I asked about options. I have a 2 year old and explained I would like more information before I decided surgery as I have to think about childcare.
I have since been back to my GP and requested a second opinion, she is absolutely fine about it and recommend Kings College Hospital Camberwell but said I can do some research and decide for myself if I wish...
Is there anyone who has had surgery/treatment for something similar in the South London/Bromley/Kent area that can recommend a hospital (or a consultant by private message) I can see please? Or maybe a website where I can get more info on NHS consultants specialising in this area. I have tried NHS choices but the site is down and I am unable to search Hernia Repair in the geographical areas above.
I am very nervous about having an MRI for further investigations as I suffer from claustrophobia and the last one I had was an awful experience...I don't think they do the sit down one on NHS
Any advice would be helpful.
