After several different hospital appointments and lots of different unsuccessful treatment zoladex, mirena etc I asked to get refered to an endometriosis specialist. I was lucky to get an appointment and went with a high level of optimism . When I walked in the Doctor said what are you here for? When I explained I thought I was seeing a specialist he said no they were for general gynae. However he said he would still do a scan then he would refer me. He asked me about my symptoms and when I got a pre typed up list out of my bag he said no that's to long I'll just ask you some questions he did not ask what treatments I had tried or how long or intense any of the symptoms are. Finally I had a transvaginal scan, I asked the doctor what he was looking for specifically and he said endometriosis, when I questioned this saying I didn't think you could diagnose this from a scan he said that this was a special department and that they could see it. He said he can see my ovaries are stuck to the sides and he can see a small nodule. He edventually agreed to refer me to the endometriosis team before he suggested I try the mini pill to treat it as " you don't need surgery" am I missing something? Can he really tell this from a scan? I feel really frustrated with his treatment why do they never seem to get the diagnostic Side right??
