My husband and I have been TTC for 8 yrs and have only just been able to be referred through GP as turned 30. My husband has CF and is missing his vas deferens tube that carries the sperm out of the testes. He has sperm in there so they will have to remove it surgically and freeze it. Has anyone else's husband had this done?
We were referred by our GP but after a comedy of errors by the GP and hosp we have had 3 appts cancelled on us (GP not getting blood test results on time, not fulfilling the 19 point check list and the hosp deciding we were supposed to have been referred to a different hosp after all) it has been a full year since the first referral letter was sent to the hospital. Has anyone else waiting this long just to be seen? It's so frustrating that this is just for an appt!
As we are going NHS how long was it from your referral to start of treatment?

Thanks for taking the time to reply. And glad you got there in the end Just got a letter from the hosp this morning funnily enough! Our appt is in March to see the consultant so we will see what happens. I think my husband is a little scared to say the least about what he has to go through! Did your husband have general aneasthetic?
