    Default Going private to seek medical help

    Just woundering, once you see a private doctor an they have indicated that u have to have an operation but then puts you through the NHS due to the treament being to expensive, how long do you have to wait to be called to have the operation?

    the NHS in northern ireland. I paid for a private consultant and she then idicated that i need surgery to remove the endometriosis so she said would it be ok if i get it done through the NHS as the operation is expensive.

    she knows that i am in alot of pain and have been off work for 4 weeks with the pain and on a bag full of medication. she also indicated that there is more probelms than endometriosis in my lower abdomen so she really want to get a good look inside my lower abdomen.

    I am just woundering how long will i ahve to wait to go through the surgey as i am in a lot of pain and i really do feel like giving up. times i think i would be better off dead and bured in beside my granny

    Thanks for your reply, look forward to chatting to you soon

    Hi Shelley.

    I don't think as an Australian I would be qualified to speak about the NHS system in Ireland having never been there. Most of the posters would probably feel the same. Is there an Irish equilivant to this site you could join?
