I have a large multi nodular goitre pressing in my windpipe it's causing breathing issues when I sleep I stop breathing and wake up all the time. I'm waiting on surgery for a total thyroid removal but trying to get help on dates is proving impossible. Last week my surgeon's secretary told me that I should have a date soon so I got my hopes up. I rang the person who actually makes the hospital appts today and she was unhelpful and said I wasn't now urgent and that I could be at least another 3 or 4 months best case. I feel like I don't know where to turn and no one is helpful I was pretty much spoken to in a very dismissive tone and she couldn't get me off the phone quick enough...my experience of the NHS with this has been dreadful. I feel like I'm an imposition and nit treated as a patient. Thanks.
