So, an update following on from my previous blog post - "My first lap - or not" I had a consultation with the same surgeon regarding the operation to have this giant cyst removed. He was giving me my blood test results and said (I quote) "It showed up that you either have a swelling in the Pelvis possibly caused by Chlamydia, Ovarian Cancer Or Endometriosis........Have you heard of Endometriosis?"....
ARE YOU ACTUALLY KIDDING ME?!?!?
I have been seeing this surgeon for 2 years leading up to this Laparoscopy to diagnose diaphragmatic endometriosis. I have had 1 appointment, and 3 consultations before this. He was also operating on me this time last week, to look for and treat diaphragmatic endometriosis!!! I mean, Is he serious!! the Laparoscopy could not go ahead because I have a huge cyst in the way that needs removal first, and this was not discovered because this surgeon did not examine my stomach at the last consultation!!! Which he admitted and apologised for!!
I know they see a lot of people but REALLY?! Have I heard of Endometriosis?!?!? I am absolutely Flabbergasted!! He fobbed off the likeliness of endometriosis yet again, despite already doubting me and making a mistake previously, and the fact that I tick every possible box for having endometriosis!!
Shocking!! So Frustrating!! It couldn't be clearer that the Cyst is endometrial!!
Will update again once the next op has been completed!!
Wish me luck, I feel I am going to need it!!
