Hey ladies so I'm really confused I had my lap on Tuesday, (I was only under for 15 minutes which doesn't seem long enough to me for a proper inspection!) but they said no Endo and left it as undiagonised pelvic pain. Now I don't know where to go from here and my GP never believed there was anything wrong with me anyway so he will most likely love hearing this news, but I'm not in all this pain for 3 years for nothing and the 3 gynos I saw said it really sounds like Endo as my symptoms are text book.
I don't know if I should go to my GP again? What do I say to him. I feel like I should give up because no-one believes me anyway. I have read a few things about adenomyosis but I don't know what it is and my GP will most likely brush it off.
I had the mirena fitted during the lap as she believed it could help the pain I was in however last night I was in A&E having it taken out as my uterus was rejecting it. I have been on the combined pill for 5 years and it doesn't help symptoms and I can't go back on it anyway because of aura migraines. I'm just so confused as to what to do, who to go to and what to say? I don't know what contraception to go on either.
Sorry for the ranting girls hope you're all doing well xxxx
What a pain - I don't know if I can say much because I haven't yet been diagnosed and this is something I am also worried about when / if I ever get a lap.
I would go and see another doctor - possibly one with a specialist in Gyno. It's sad that GPs aren't helpful, I have been seeing 3 different doctors and 2 different nurses with the same symptoms for the past two years and none of them have even mentioned endo to me - it was only the radiographer when she couldn't find anything on my internal and external ultrasound that mentioned that endo wouldn't appear on the scan and I should maybe do some research into it.
I have decided to go to a different doctor who has a special interest in Gyno, I am hoping she is going to help.
I am also looking into going private, I am in contact with someone at Leeds who's charge for a 25 min consultation is £120 - this is expensive I know but if it helps me be diagnosed with whatever I have got then it will be worth it.
I hope you find out what is wrong - it's not normal to be in pain, whoever tells you it is...needs sacking!! (my GP told me that 'some women just have to live with irregular bleeding and pain'
I hope you find your answers xxxx
