Well that gynae appt didn't go exactly how I wanted it to go, after waiting an hour to see consultant (which didn't bother me I understand they run late), she asked me how I was with the coil and said she couldn't understand how it had came out, I explained that I still bled and was in pain to which she couldn't understand either, her next question was if I wanted ablation in an outpatient appt to which I said I would prefer GA which she agreed to do so I was quite happy and feeling optimistic by then, I then thought I would tell her AGAIN that bleeding wasn't a problem I wasn't heavy it is the pain I can't deal with anymore, I mentioned also that I get a lot of pelvic pain which is mainly where my pain starts in the pelvic region on my right side (I had previous ectopic so have no tube on this side), it was then she seemed to turn into a completely different consultant and insinuated that the pains were in my head!!! To which my husband in no uncertain terms told her that he watches me go through this every month they are definitely not in my head, she then told me that from now I can't fall pregnant and she wanted me on something to stop that happening other than condoms that we us, I'm 35 yrs old I suffer with osteoarthritis in my legs and hips which means I fall a lot, I don't want anymore children is wouldnt be safe for me to go down that route, condoms are just fine for us to use because pregnancy ain't going to happen, I was quite shocked she said that, she then suggested a 3 month injection of prostap as if have to wait till July for my op....... So not only do I feel she insulted me twice she then said she'd give me a diagnostic laparoscopy with camera but if she finds anything she won't act on it and most women just come to terms with the fact nothing can be done...I feel totally upset that someone could think that I am making the pains up and think I'm not grown up enough at 35 (married with a 14yr old) to stop myself from getting pregnant!! My husband has said that he thinks we should ask for a second opinion but I'm thinking will another consultant offer me exactly what this one has, im at a total loss all I no is I can't keep doing this every month, it affects my life for 2 weeks out of the month surely this isn't normal and I shouldn't need to put up with it!! so sorry for the long message X
