I have endometriosis and I have had cysts removed from my ovaries in the past. I went back to my consultant in severe pain. I was told that I needed an urgent scan. The maximum waiting time for referrals in Scotland is 16 weeks the appointment that came through was for 6 months time. Obviously I couldn't wait that long and fought back but I want to know if the same thing has happened to other women or is this an isolated case? Please Get In Contact.
