So, last night I had my ultrasound and not surprisingly there was nothing untoward, so I have now tried all the GPs demands to enable me to move forward with a referral, I'm 4 weeks into the evil Depo injection (pointless) and have taken all their prescribed painkillers, I have complied.
My first lap was 4.5 years ago and was a quick in and out and some endo was 'burnt off' and I was sent away without any other information or advice other than come back if you have any more problems.
Skip on 4.5 years and here I am, daily pain in left sciatic area, hip and down my left leg, the lady who did my scan was incredibly sympathetic and frustrated that I wasn't given any advice or further help after my first op.
Through this website I have been able to educate myself over the last 6 months and feel oh so grateful for its existence.
I am returning to the GP at the end of next week and will not leave the room until I have been referred to a BSGE centre, probably Bristol as I am in Swindon.
Keep on fighting ladies, I feel things are improving in terms of acceptance, education and treatment for this horrible disease and I feel more positive and hopeful than I have in quite some time.
