Hi everyone, I have just been waiting now over 6 months for a thyroid operation and yes it was suppose to go ahead this week Thursday and I have just received a phone call to say that it has been cancelled postponed until the end of March great I have waited this long so what is another 6 weeks or so hopefully I will get in then and this operation can be done as I am so sick of not being able to eat properly
I am sorry everyone for this rant

  • good to see that you are better now. the waiting lists are redic


  • Just an update had the operation went well just now for the recovery time


  • Thanks everyone for your comments
    I actually am going in on March 19 for the operation only a few more days to go and counting


  • That must be terrible. Did they now book you in for a new operation?


  • I can understand your frustration – I hope it goes ahead soon.


  • It is so frustrating when you get geared but for surgery and it is put off. I hope that all goes to plan in March and there is no more waiting for you


  • Very frustrating ,could always ring Health Deartment see if anything can be done .


  • all the best for when it finally does happen in the meantime keep MOM in mind it always helps


  • Vent away! It definitely sounds like you are frustrated and fair enough! It can be a challenge when you prepare yourself for something and then it changes! Hope all goes well when you do have your operation.


  • You have every right to feel angry and miserable. Thyroid issues can make people feel very unwell. I wish you well. Hospital waiting times and waiting lists particularly make me feel cross at the moment as well.


  • I took a course of resource before I had one of my surgeries (the specialist told me the one he prescribed for me would help healing and repair of tissues).
    There are quite a lot on the market and do really help with nutrients , and the one I took was delicious .
    Here is another one I found whilst searching.
    Wishing you well. xx


  • Sending love and gentle hugs your way.
    We struggle to pay private health but I must admit it has been used and comes in very handy many times.
    Pray the time passes quickly for you or better still they have a opening space they can slot you into before 6 wks.
    Wondering if this will help in the mean time.
