Hi all! I'm hoping for some advice as I don't know where to turn. In short
*Referred to Gyne after months of pains and bleeding between cycles
*Ultrasound showed right ovary fused to uterus and Gyne suspected Endo
*Lap showns no Endo but multiple Abdominal Adhesions. Ovaries weren't visualised as "couldn't get camera through adhesions"
*Gyne prescribed 50mg Provera for 8 weeks as thinks I'm producing too much hormone. Was told periods would stop and I wouldn't ovulate; we're currently trying for a family so not best option but I'll try anything to stop the pain
*Constant pain has stopped, waves of pain are more intense, frequent and painful than before
*Period came in August (3 weeks after starting on Provera) and was like every other though 2 days after I started spotting again and am still going 16 days later
*Called Gyne office today to see if I can bring my appointment forward (it's 22nd of this month) but there are no clinics at all until then. I asked what I'm supposed to do and I was told visit my GP for "advice"
My GP referred me to them cos he didn't know what was wrong with me. I have no standard or quality of life at moment and feel like I'm being fobbed off (we move to Germany in November)
I'm so miserable. I feel like no one is listening or are even bothered; even my mother tells me to "stop being mardy" and makes comments about the pain of child birth etc. I don't even know if I can have children even though my tubes are clear after having the dye test done during Lap.
I was told when given the Provera if it doesn't work the next step is surgery for the adhesions. My adhesions aren't in my area of pain so how will that help? I don't want to go back there angry and frustrated, I want to ask the right questions but what more can I ask or can be done. He said in a very matter of fact way that if the drugs don't work and surgery doesn't, the only way to be pain free is a hysterectomy!! I'm 31 and childless! Surely there are other options?
Please can some help with questions I can ask them and/what I can push for?
Thanks in advance, Sarah x
