I thought I will give you a quick update
I have seen french endo specialist yesterday and ... WOW that he is a good doctor. I stayed about 1 and a half hour for consultation and he listened a lot. It feels so good to get to talk to someone that takes you seriously and understand what our daily pain is.
According to my symptoms and my history he thinks that everything must have started when I was a teenager, so about 13/15 years ago. He also think that my endo is quite severe. He did a new ultrasound and found that my uterus is just 5cm long and one of my ovary is ok but the other one is not (I can't really remember what he said about it, it was hard to concentrate with the pain of the examination but I will receive a report on monday).
I showed him the NHS S2 form and he thought that it was a bit complicated but still possible to do even though it might be quite long as I have to have a letter from NHS consultant and a letter from him and then wait for NHS funding aggreement (or disaggreement...).
His idea was to book a date for laparoscopic surgery and for me to come on holidays to my mum and dad and then pretend it was an emmergency. I then can use my European Healthcard and be treated as if I was French....
He still wants me to have an MRI done in england and get the full report and if possible a DVD of it... I have a prescription from him requesting that but I am not too sure how this will work in the UK...
I also have to go on monday for a blood test to see how many eggs I have left.
After op, he suggested that I will try IVF straight away as it is still in my plan to have babies and it will be the best time for me to conceive and at the same time but my body into (kinda) rest for 9months.
I hope this is not too confusing... I might have forgotten bits and bobs but it was a long appointment but definitely worth the wait.
I hope you are all ok today.
Sending you hugs from sunny France
