I'm currently feeling like I'm somewhere in between a rock and a hard place. I live in north Wales and am awaiting a laparoscopy to remove endometriosis which is sticking together my ovaries. However, the hospital I'm going to doesn't do excision surgery, only lasering.
I've asked my GP to refer me for a private consultation in another hospital over the border in England so I can get a second opinion and more information on the surgery I'm scheduled to have done.
Living in Wales I think it's unlikely I'll be able to access surgery on the NHS in England.
Now I feel like my options are to go ahead with the laser surgery in North Wales and use our savings to pay for IVF should I need it (which currently looks likely) or pay for the excision surgery privately in England and hope and pray it does enough so that I won't need IVF afterwards and can conceive naturally.
What a dilemma! Any thoughts ladies? What would you do? X
