I got referred to a consultant with suspected endo. He said it is likely. The entire appointment was rushed, i barely got a word in and he was quite dismissive. The only options he mentioned was lap surgery or hormone treatment to put me in to temporary menopause. Although I did not feel like I was given much of an option, he said he was recommending the hormone treatment. He kept saying that the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists think that too many young women with pelvic pain are having the surgery...he said this 4 times. He didn't explain his choices or go through the benefits or side effects. Then there was the physical examination, it was horrible and I was sore after...I am 30 years old and that was the worst pelvic examination I have ever had.
Has anyone else had an experience like this?
Is there anyone here that has tried the hormone option? From what i have read it doesn't get rid of the parts that can glue organs to each other, is this correct?
Any advice would be fantastic.
