Just wondering if anyone in the UK can advise what sort of waiting times they've had lately for surgery please? I'm in the North West, it's for comparison really. I'm waiting for pouch excision surgery due to fistulas, but it's been 22 weeks now and I've not heard a peep from the hospital. When my op was first booked, I was told that it was down as 'urgent' and that I was top of the list (though I imagine I'm the only one on the pouch excision list to be honest, so that doesn't mean much)..
I was told that under normal circumstances they could guarantee me the op within a month, but due to Covid etc they were estimating 3 months.. it's so far been 5 months and I've literally heard nothing from the hospital, not even to check in etc ..
Has anyone else had recent surgery, or is waiting in the UK please? Just wondering what your waiting times are looking like and if I should be hassling the hospital a bit more by now to get a date booked?
Thank you, FF
