A spokesman for East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust said: “We are very sorry to hear Mrs Rutter has concerns about her care.
“Doctors had to take the decision to delay Mrs Rutter’s operation for clinical reasons, which have been explained to Mrs Rutter. It would have been unsafe to proceed with surgery.
“We understand any delay is distressing and we are continuing to review Mrs Rutter’s care. Mrs Rutter has a further consultation planned for later this month.”
