Have you had a second opinion yet as whether or not it should have been diagnosed otherwise?

I do not know when that procedure is going to be but today I have kidney pain again and will have to some morphine
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Just to be clear they have admitted me in the letter that it should have been dealt with much sooner
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.

Ok - then if there is an admission of liability then it seems like you have a case.

You should go and see a no win no fee medical negligence solicitor.

They can start and bring a claim on your behalf to get the compensation you deserve.

There are plenty out there if you google them:
