    Is anyone here from Perth? If so, what surgery did you go to? I go to the Fremantle Hospital surgery and they are a bunch of clowns in there.

    I need to find a better surgery :mad:

    Hi

    I was just wondering whether your surgery was covered under medicare and where you went to get it done. I have heard a few people talking about a Dr Rickard in Concord but am not sure whether itsworth making the trip.
    How long were you in hospital?

    Hi. Yep its covered by medicare, although it can be a long wait depending if they decide its not urgent. My latest operation was done in Newcastle under medicare.

    What type of surgery was covered by medicare? Doc wants to admit me via emergency room and well after reading so much open excision seems barbaric. Im in darwin moving to sydney next year. 27 ur old f with 11 yrs of pain multiple lancings no surgery.

    Hi Leah,

    I'm in Sydney and was seen by Dr Darren Gold. He is very well known colorectal surgeon.
