I just want to reassure you that this isn't going to impact on your clinical outcome - cervical cancer is a very slow growing cancer, so having your operation a week after the last date they should be doing it is not going to change your clinical outcome. However, even though this is the case, they should still be doing it within the prescribed times. I still think it's worth complaining even if it is unlikely to have the effect of bringing your surgery date forward, because it's unlikely that you are the only person in this hospital for whom they are not meeting the guideline times, so the more that people complain about it, the more they will be forced to address it. So, whilst as awful as it is that complaining might not help you personally, it's possible that it will help women in your position in the future. Only do it if you've got the energy though - you need to focus on yourself at the moment!
Have you thought about contacting the patient liason organisation at the hospital (they are often called PALS) - they might be able to liase successfully between you and the management (you're right - unfortunately clinical staff have no influence over theatre dates etc.. it's an admin and management job - my consultant and my surgeon both had major strops in the corridor when I got kicked off the theatre list on 18th Oct and I could hear my consultant shouting from where I was on the ward, but I still didn't have my op that day).
The other thing I would say is that it's worth making sure that you're first or second on the theatre list for the day of your operation. Given that they are going over the protocol time as it is, they need to reassure you that there will be no further delays. One way they can do this is to make sure that you are first on the list for that day, to ensure that any emergency admissions etc... won't compromise your position.
I hope this helps.
Much love, Annabel. x
