Im in quite a state today about my Daughter. She has had a brown discharge continuously for 1 year. She went to the doctors who put her on the pill for 3 months. This lessened it but it didnt go away. She went back to the doctor and they ordered a scan which of course she had to wait for. Once that came through, she then had to wait for the results which showed 2 large cysts on one ovary and another cyst on the other ovary.
She has now been to see the Consultant. They have booked her in for a laparoscopy to remove these cysts. However they have also warned her the surgery could be more invasive and that she may lose her ovaries.
That was it. No mention of counselling, egg freezing, complications of sudden surgical menopause. Nothing. I am so distressed for her. She hasnt even had sexual relationship yet and yet she may be entering an early menopause.
Surely there is something more that can be done? What should she be asking for? Fertility clinic? Second opinion? I doubt the second opinion will show up much else.
Is there a specialist consultant that can show greater feeling for a young girl with options that are more suitable for her and preferably on the National Health?
Help please. She isnt talking much about it. She doesnt want to talk much because she is also a Type 1 diabetic so health issues are predominantly in her mind and she's fed up.
