Hi everyone! New to all this - feeling a bit isolated and not sure what to do next! I was finally diagnosed with endometriosis, bowel adhesions and pelvic congeston syndrome after a laparoscopy last year. The surgeon told me all this whilst I was just coming round from anaesthetic so was a bit hard to take everything in! I got a letter c. 5 weeks later telling me to go to my GP practice for Zoladex or Prostap injections. I wanted to discuss this with someone - find out why / side-effects / future etc. but before I could see my GP the hospital contacted me to say that they have taken me off their list as I have not gone ahead with their plan. So now I have no input from gynae services, and don't really know what to do! I was relieved in a way to get the diagnosis ( I knew something was wrong - despite years of being told by GPs that everything was fine and I was just a worrier!), but don't really know what to do next. I'm not deliberately ignoring the hospital's advice - just wanted to discuss my options. I have never seen the same GP twice - so don't really have a link there either. Does everyone else have a consultant? Should I be receiving some input from someone? Are the injections the best thing to do? Just a bit worried that things will be getting worse if I just leave things as they are without any follow-up. Thanks for reading! xx
