    why does it happen ..... daughter been on waiting list for cataract op since Feb 2019 - in desperation I decided to go private (she is  now nearly blind in one eye) 
    Paid the £3000 cost today - literally five mins later a call from NHS to say she can have the op early June.  Two weeks later.

    Still carrying on with the private one - too late to change anyway - I'll be glad when this nightmare is over.

    How lovely to have a moan to someone -- thank you very much.

    Aged 84 and feeling it.


    thank you for my welcome - molly

    @MOLLYW

    I am in exactly the same situation blind in one eye and cataract in other just getting worse but as it routine surgery they haven't been doing it on NHS 

    I can't afford to go private so just have to wait 

    How can it be routine when it totally affects your quality of life I ask

    Oooft, what are the chances of you hearing from the NHS so soon after booking that private appointment?!  Typical, eh.  I hope your daughter gets on okay and yes feel free to moan to us whenever you like :)
