Five weeks ago my GP told me she was going to refer me to gynecology for pelvic pain I have been having since last September. My GP and other doctors at my practice have no idea what is wrong with me, but to me and from what I have read I think I have endometriosis ( as do my friends who are also student nurses like me and have had placements in gyni).
How long do you have to wait on average to get the first appointment?
Also, the GP I see most has left the practice i go to, will this effect my referral?
What should I expect from my first gyni appointment?
Symptoms and brief history- Pain in lover right abdominal, mostly a dull pain that is constant, with sharp stabbing/ cramp like pain similar to that of an appendicitis, constipation, occasional nausea, pain when lying on back, stomach, sometimes side and when touched or pressure is on the area. I have had my appendix removed in the part ( 2010), PCOS has been ruled out and only a small follicle was found on my right ovary during the internal ultrasound. I am a virgin and 18.
