Hi thanks for getting back to me. I got a letter this morning saying they have cancelled my appiontment :(

the letter states the reason is thye have improved the pathway there patients follow, the new process leads to ealier treatment and involves fewer vists to hosptial and they will be in touch once my referral letter has been triaged with a questionnaire which i must complete prior to arranging a screening appointment.

so it looks like everyone is in the dark now because of these changes. Looks like i will just have to wait once more and see what happens. I was excited thinking things where on the move but looks like Im stuck in limbo once again. oh well the saying goes good things come to those who wait lol

I have no idea what's going on heard nothing. My appointment should of been this Tuesday coming. It said in the letter the new way of doing it is quicker can't see it bring if I've got to wait, in my eyes going to the appointment would be quicker than postman watching. Feel like I'm back to square one now waiting waiting and waiting. Fingers crossed we both hear something soon x

Hi there,

Just wondering who you will get to see at St Mary's. Do they tell u that?
I'm not going for Ivf but I have a private appointment with Dr Edmond Edi-Osagie tomorow and he also is the head gynae at St Mary's. I googled him and he looks pretty good but I'm needing to see someone about finding out what all the cysts ate inside me, whether they are cancerous or not and if they can be removed to see if I can conceive.
Would be good to get some reviews as its quite daunting to tell who is the best Dr to go to.
Hoping all goes well for u ladies and u get ur appointments quickly. Got my fingers crossed for u both

Hi Turquoise, I've met Dr Edi twice and I can say he is very nice. He will listen to you and doesn't sound like the previous doctor I met before him who painted the picture of "he is trying to help me" and was bold enough to say it to my face even when all was going wrong with my treatment.

You will be fine, feel free to ask as many questions as you want, he is never in a hurry.

All the best for your treatment.

Hi Tinkerbell, this rollercoster has taught us all how to wait, It is indeed a waiting game. Why not pop over to St Mary thread on this website. All the best for your treatment
