I am sick of the doctors at my surgery, they are stuck in the dark ages when it comes to Endo. Despite having a laparoscapy and finding and removing some Endo in January (I'm now having all sorts of problems again which I know are all symptoms of Endo as I've had them before) my GP still thinks my chronic back pain and leg pain is sciatica! I went to the spinal outpatients department the other day as my GP had referred me there and they had no idea why I had been sent to them but could see how disgruntled I was and they are now helping by doing an MRI on my back to prove to the GP that my back isn't the problem. Also my GP keeps saying that they will refer me for different things and then forgetting to do it, then 2 months later nothing has been done and it's more time that I have been in pain and longer to wait for each step.
So... My question is can you ask your GP just to refer you to and Endometriosis specialist and do they have to do it? I just want to deal with someone who knows and understands the condition. I keep going around the houses at the moment with various GPs and consultants and I don't want this to go on for years and my treatment be inappropriate or so slow that it makes matters worse!
