This is only my second post but I am finding this forum a great source of comfort and support for great information while Im awaiting diagnosis.
I saw my gaeny yesterday and left in tears of frustration. I went armed with an extensive list of symptoms and history and after waiting 45 mins past my appointment time I left feeling that I had been fobbed off.
My consultant was running late on consultations and was trying to squeeze everyone in before he went off on annual leave. I felt that I was not given enough time to discuss my symptoms, history and concerns and barely got through any of them. Whilst I have been put on the waiting list for a Hystoscopy and Laparoscopy, the only thing he did offer was the Mirena Coil. I was hoping for more effective pain medication to help me in the mean time but he said that this is best managed by my GP.
I have been researching the Mirena Coil and speaking to people that I know personally and most people seem to advise against it. I am not really in a position to pay for private medical treatment but am starting to wonder if I should try to get the money to do this as Im already having to go for a Stage 1 sickness interview with work after having to take a month off since March.
What are your thoughts on the Mirena Coil and paying privately for diagnosis and treatment?
