I have had an awful time with my last gyne, he made out nothing was wrong with me and sent me to a gastroentrolgist who told me after seeing me for 5 minutes and not even checking my stomach I had constipation and that I could be healed by taking laxatives! Which I already take. How can anyone just jump to that conclusion without checking what's going on with someone's stomach or their medical history? The only conclusion I could come up with, was what was in the wrote in the referal letter from the Gyne.
Plus the fact that my Endocrinologist has been trying to contact him about my ostoprosis and working together to come up with a solution to help me. Since proestrogen is not good for ostoprosis but oestrogen is which of course is not good for endo
Except he has never replied once to the many emails and letters sent to him. To the conclusion they have even told me to change gynes.
So I've taken the plunge and asked for a gyne I saw on the endo website. Which took a lot of courage on my part because I'm not very good at standing up for myself.
I've also taken the plunge and got my medical records sent down to me from Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. Which arrived a couple of days ago. It cost me fifty pounds but I think it was worth it.
I've just finished reading all the drs notes and the histopathology reports. It was hard going because it made me relive some very hard decisions. Plus I found out that although its in my notes that there was no endometriosis on my right overy, but in my histopathology report it says I had it in and over the overy, the same with my sigmoid colon that they partcialy removed. But all I ever got told was that it was not in or over the bowl.
It upsets me that I trusted the Dr but he still lied about me not having endometriosis anymore and made me feel i was making a bit of a fuss over nothing!
After that he told me to go on HRT that it would help me, which in the end made it worse.
Since then ive moved down to Manchester where ive been fightingto be taken seriously ever since, since all the symptoms I've suffered in the past are back. So im really hoping when I take a copy of my notes and histopathology reports he will take me seriously.
If any of you lasses feel your not being taken seriously I would recommend getting your medical records sent to you. So you know exactly what is going on inside you and what the drs and other medical personal who are dealing with this terrible disease are thinking
