It was precisely a week since I had my sub-areolar ductal tissue excision and the phone rang with a follow-up appointment. No, not two weeks as the leaflet I was given at discharge says, No, not the four weeks that the surgeon quotes. No, a whopping eight weeks of waiting.
I'm thinking that if anything untoward had been found they would have told me and that's why the eight weeks is nothing to worry about. Ah, but then what if there are incredibly busy .....?
Poor old NHS - you are so awfully bad at looking after the emotional health of your patients. Why do you not realise and why don't you do something about it?
