Having had endo for what seems forever. Ended up in A&E last week with uncontrollable shaking and pain. Was sent through to gynae where given painkillers and monitored before having a scan. The scan showed nothing but apparently my uterus was tilted to the right and they couldn't see my right ovary. Was told I had a Uti as well so given antibiotics. Gynae came round and basically told me the pain was a 'red herring' even though pain was exactly what I always experienced she was determined it was a UTI. Never felt so insulted. Was then told to arrange to see my consultant in 3 months even though my pain was 9 on pain scale 1-10. Thankfully my parents offered to pay for me to see consultant privately. ..amazing how quick you get an appt if you offer to pay!! Seeing him today to convince him to give me hysterectomy. I am still shaking and in pain and had a week off work plus getting signed off another week. I'm fed up of it all as doing my teacher training and need to do 120 days in school but keep having time off due to pain. My partner has been incredible but obviously doesn't understand the pain. Feel so alone and know I'm going to have a fight on my hands with gynae as on zoladex which hasn't worked which I know he will argue means it isn't endo. I was wondering how many other women have had similar experiences.
