I have recently had my referal letter come through and my first appointment is on 6th October at the endonetriosos clinic at the Birmingham women's hospital.
Here is my story;
Always as teenager had infrequent and very painful periods and was put on the pill to control this. Also had tablets to reduce the level of bleeding.
Fast forward 12-13 years in January 2014 I decided to come of the pill to see if this was effecting my weight, I had my normal bleed from the pill in January and then nothing.
On 27th June when I woke up, I had the most excruciating pain in my left hand side where ovary would be. I rang my doctors to book and appointment for that day and got ready for and went to work.
Not been able to put up with the pain I went straight to my moms house, she rang the doctors back up and was told to take me up straight away.
After seeing the doctor, he tried to get the worms hospital to see me straight away, they wouldn't, so I was sent to A&E.
After been in the waiting room around 20 mins I was taken through and seen by a doctor. I was given morphine and said I was been referred over to the women's hospital.
I was kept in over night for pain management and had a scan the next morning. when the consultant came round to see me they told me I had PCO and they think the pain was caused from a burst cyst.
I went back to see my doctor who said a for a cyst to burst and cause they much pain wouldn't have been a cyst from PCO. He gave me some stronger tablets to help manage the pain which I was told would ease off as the burst cyst settle down.
By October i was still in some discomfort and pain so referred by doctor to have another scan and blood test. It was then confirmed I had PCOS.
Now a year on, I am still pretty much having daily pains on the left hand side and sometimes on the right. I was sent to have another scan which the nurse told me was normal, mention of any cysts on my ovaries.
My doctor said he would refer me to the women's hospital for undiagnosed pelvic pain. When I had my letter come through I have been referred to the endo clinic.
The is endo on my moms side of the family, I have 2 cousins that have it.
is there any one else who had PCOS and endo ?
What are the consequences of having both together?
What can I expect from my first appointment?
Sorry for the long post.
