This thing sucks

Having a bad week with pain and am so emotional. Not like me at all!! My hormones normally make me grumpy not teary.

I just don't understand why I am being left like this. Why not remove it sinse it is clearly causing an issue. I made a doctors appointment last week but it's not until 6th June, my whole village must be ill lol.

I don't know what to do about it. Dr won't refer me to specialist, gynae don't want to see me again until the end of September. And to make it worse no one is doing anything about the fact the Surgent lost my coil inside me somewhere.

Sorry I'm moaning again 😢 I just don't have anyone to support me at the moment.

Hi, poor you! As frustrating as this all is, you have to keep lists of how you feel both physically and emotionally and show this to your GP and ask for their help and advice. Explain what you're finding intolerable and try to make it tangible for the GP to understand and imagine.

It's really difficult when you're feeling so low and vulnerable to make yourself heard and to be strong enough to convey how you're feeling. I know you're feeling rubbish but don't be the victim in this. You have to help yourself and get the GP to listen to you and take action. I've been there and it's awful.

Good luck with your GP. x


I agree with Summer Time. Perseverance is the key with your GP. Keep going back and asking for that referral and don't give up. I know it's hard when you're not in a great place emotionally but the effects of Endo don't just disappear. Hang in there 😊


Thanks ladies. I am going to sit down tomorrow and right everything down. I feel so failed by the nhs!! I know I shouldn't moan because we have it good in Scotland.
