So I went to gyni today for my first appointment and was really nervous. Met the consultant and had the general questions asked, told her where my pain was how often, the whole shabam. Then she asked me what I thought it might be and why I have been sent to gyni. Isn't that her job to find out. So she examined my stomach and did a bi- manual, which was sore and uncomfortable, but i couldn't pinpoint where. She said that everything appeared to be OK and that it is unlikely to be Gynecological and said that at this point there isn't a reason to do a lap and said that because all my bloods and scans were fine (from February) that she didn't need to repeat them. So at which point is it acceptable to have a lap, when i am tearing my hair out and crying hysterically in pain.
She thinks I should go back on the pill to reduce the amount of periods I am having to see if that helps, but i have been on the pill before and found no benefit from it and pt on loads of weight. She thinks I might have adhesion from my appendix surgery 4 years ago and it is unlikely that they can do anything for that.
Sorry for the rant, but i am completely fed up. I feel like i am not getting listened to. I just want answers now and a possible solution to my pain. I don't want it to effect my life even though it is beginning to. The more they say there is nothing they can do, the more i think it is in my head which i know it is not. I can't stop crying now, PMS.
Thinking of going to the doctors and seeing what the next step may be as i don't want to go on the pill again. And I think i will bring my mum next time too. And the next time I get a day of constant pain, I might take myself to A&E, that way they might take me a bit more seriously.
And looks like I didn't get my birthday wish for answers or solution to my pain. ( It was my 19th birthday yesterday).
