sorry for the rant but AAARRRRGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As most of you know i was diagnosed with cancer a few months ago,nothing fatal but its enough to make you change your outlook on life,beleive me:dowhat :laugh
anyhow iv been having a few problems lately and saw my consultant (a really nice guy) "not a problem Dave" he says "we will get you in for a exploratory op just to check it out".
SOOOOOOO after a couple of weeks wait i get an appointment for today for "day surgery" general anesthetic a quick stretch of the old man pip and bobs your uncle (or so i thought):dowhat :banghead
i turned up at 11:30 had all the usual bloods done ,pressures checked,ect,ect then get sent to the ward,put in the usual gown and crap and sit in bed and wait,and wait,and wait so at 3:10 they come down to take me for my op "anywhere to put my chewing gum" I say:O
"WHAT" the nurse says:dowhat "have you been eating":dowhat
"er no iv been chewing chewing gum" i say
"well that's eating..............so you cant have your op today"
WHAT THE ****:eek:mg "your kidding" I say "NO MR Hall I am certainly not..your supposed to be nil by mouth and you have have you" she says in a right shitty tone.


I cant bloody believe it,iv got bloody cancer and im gona have to wait a few weeks to get back in because of some burucratic bitch has turned my life on its head cause she feels like it or is having a shitty day or something:rant :rant :rant :rant

By the way,my wifes a nurse so i know what they have to put up with...............but this is taking the piss.

This is like deja vu kind of for me.
Today my youngest daughter had a major surgery and it was delayed by a few hours.
I asked the nurse if she could at least chew some gum since she hadn't been allowed to eat since 8pm the night before and she said "Absolutely Not", she then went on to say that by chewing gum it will activate the enzymes in her stomach and could turn into a bad situation for her while in surgery.
We just left it at that and the poor thing just stayed hungry for another hour. :(

BTW,Her surgery was a great success. :)

Sorry about your delay Dave. :(
I hope you get it sorted and quick.

That's Shit Dave !!

My wife slipped a disc in her neck, after 4 weeks of various painkillers our doctor refered her the specialist, 2 weeks later we got a letter to ring for an appointment. 9 weeks later we got to see the specialist which was yesterday. Had loads of xrays on her neck and now need an mri scan. Have to wait another 2 weeks for letter then up to 8 weeks for MRI scan, the 2 weeks after that go back to specialist for results, only then do we get to find out the problem.......some 7 months later !!!

And thats without the waiting list for an operation to correct the slipped disc !!

Meanwhile she is in agony, can't work, can't drive, and can't shag !!

NHS, it's a joke :banghead
