Had a diagnostic lap on Monday, the surgeon confirmed I have endo and I'm now awaiting the follow up appointment. Ideally I'd like to get a referral to someone with a specialist interest in endo as at present I'm under the general menstrual disorders clinic who we're pushing the mirena as a cure all before I'd even been diagnosed. My husband and I hope to start trying for a family in 2014 so I really want to talk through my treatment options.
I know there is a consultant with a specialist interest at my local hospital and have found out it is listed as a Provisional Endometriosis Centre by the BSGE but I've been told previously that I can only be referred to a named clinic (e.g. the menstrual disorders clinic) rather than a named consultant and there is no such thing as an endo clinic at the hospital. So how am I supposed to access the Endometriosis Centre?
