I was diagnosed age 22 with severe endo 6yrs ago during a laperoscopy to remove cysts (but I have previously posted about that).
I am posting again because the last 6 months have been hell. Feeling exhausted, in pain, nauseous, feverish and dizzy. I took myself privately for an ultrasound and they spent 20mins using normal ultrasound and 3D to properly examine my ovaries/cysts and uterus.
I got refered for another scan by doctors (after endless visits) and was disgusted by the NHS treatment. As soon as the sonographer heard it was to look for a cyst she switched off, she was rough, rude and the whole "examination" lasted 2minutes. I wasnt asking for 20minutes but long enough that she could actually confirm what she thought she had seen. The report proved her incompetence as it stated I had all sorts including a genetic deformity of my uterus......doesnt actually exist.
I finally gave up with my NHS GP and booked a private endo specialist (I am not super rich, I am a student so this wasnt the easiest decision financially). I saw him once, he saw my history (same copy the GP had) and I am now booked in for a laperoscopy/hysteroscopy/cystoscopy and colonoscopy in a weeks time.
Just shows how little this condition is understood by NHS GPs.
