So here's my story, Since the beginning of this year I have been having very bad period pain. Each month the doctor would say I had a UTI. By May I had enough and asked the doctor to refer my for a scan. Two months later I get told I have cyst on my right ovary and not to worry it may go away on its own, but have another scan just incase in three months time. Three months pasted nothing no appointment so my doctor tells me to be patient.
Then three weeks ago I work up 5am feeling sick, my stomach was cramping and I couldn't even stand up. Phoned NHS direct they told me to go to the doctors. I couldn't walk never mind go to the doctors!! My partner was away on business so I was on my own. I called on my neighbour to help me get out of bed and get dressed, she took me to hospital. I told them about my cyst on the right ovary and they sent me to gynaecology ward. I was told at first it was dermoid cysts on BOTH ovaries, which had twisted and I would need open surgery. Two days later no surgery but lots of pain. MRI scanner broken so they discharged me. I have since been told by a consultant I have endometriosis and it's quite bad. Was put down as urgent surgery. My date for surgery is January 2014 and I' m still in terrible pain. I called to ask if there was any chance of a soon appointment as the pain was horrible and was told to go private if that's the case and she can't do anything for me. I asked to speak to my consultant but he's now left!!!
What can I do???? Any ideas please????? I have been given a sick note by my GP because the pain is still so bad.
