Re: Sphincterotomy - Help please
I live in England and have relied on the NHS upto having the LIS.
The NHS is frantastic but the great British tradition of queing is not good when you are poorly.
Luckily for me my employer changed private health provider giving me the chance to join covering existing conditions - this I have to pay for but its cheaper than paying privately on my own and worth dramatically speeding up the whole process.
Today I have my bowel movements under control and all I did was increase my bran intake. Also most of my pain today is in my upper buttock and hip both on the right hand side.
I have just spoken to my boss and he was very understanding so that has put my mind at ease for now concerning work.
I will report back on Tuesday when the consultant has seen me.
Heres hoping we all are pain free very soon!
