Hi

Thank you, I was expecting about 6 weeks. I start Uni in 8 weeks :-/ and would like to get it done before then.

Fingers crossed

I think it really depends on availability tbh. I was very lucky it all happened so quickly. Saw a gynaecologist on a Monday, and had a lap that Friday! Just happened to have availability. Xx

I don't remember waiting too long for my diagnostic lap with regular gyne but for my surgery with a BSGE accredited endo centre I was on the wait list for nearly a year at one cebtre before being transferred to another where I waited a another few months! Good luck! xx

I'm waiting for specialist appointment and his secretary said to me that waiting time for lap after my appointment will be more than 18weeks for this particular endo center.

Hope that you will been seen quicker

Hi 😊

wow 18 weeks. Fingers crossed you get seen quicker!

I don't think they understand that it is so debilitating. Even a diagnosis takes a tonne of your mind. At least we can start to try to live out lives normally, knowing what is causing the pain etc.
