I didn't realise for years that i had this condition but had previously been on the pill for 10 years, but for the last couple of years i knew something wasn't right.
I found the endometriosis uk site and with their help and information i diagnosed myself and took in my pain diary and questionnaire for my GP to look at. She completely dismissed my concerns and didn't listen to me when i asked to be referred and also told me that they don't do laparoscopies anymore.
Luckily i trusted my gut and changed surgeries who immediately gave me some medication and referred me, i have just had my first lap and told i have severe endo and may need IVF to conceive. If i had listened to her i wouldn't have received any treatment and i would have wasted precious time as i am 28 now and my fertility would have suffered even more.
It is disgusting that she is in this position and i worry for other patients which she may have neglected in her care.
I am going to put in a no win no fee claim with a solicitor i just wondered if anybody else had been in my situation?
