Lyndsay Fraser started this petition to Scottish Government

My aim is to try and make some noise about the lack of surgeries that are happening, I am waiting for surgery to remove a large tumour from my left ovary. I’ve been left with zero information for a date. I’ve been told it’s “pot luck” who gets picked of the priority list due to Covid and no sign of surgeries happening anytime soon. I’m not alone here, there’s lots of people in the same worrying boat. I have the upmost respect for the NHS and all who work for them, this is in no way an attack, I’m simply at the end of the line of other things I can do so now I need help. I’m not an overly private person I’m pretty much an open book but sharing this has felt very scary and feels unfair that I have to go to such measures just to get the surgery I so desperately need. I’m terrified of the surgery but I’m more terrified of the wait.. the wait can mean so many bad things for me, the spread that could be happening, the tumour getting bigger meaning more pain for me and the obvious getting the big C. My hope is that they can remove it all with no spread and I can go on my Merry way to recovering and this just be a blip in my story. 
Thank you to everyone who has reached out and offered advice and support it really is massively appreciated more than you will ever know.
