Hi ladies I'm completely fed up! I had my lap in April and was told it would be 45mins to 2hrs long but the surgery took 4 hrs in total I had extensive endo a cyst on each ovary 9cm on my right and "only" 3-4 cm on my left they were "kissing ovaries attached at the front of my uterus, the surgeon could not remove seperate my uterus from my bowel as its too badly diseased. Im still in a considerable amount of pain and don't feel like the surgery has done me any favours. As my own GP failed to diagnose this after 21.5 yrs it was discovered by a fertility specialist last May he wrote to my GP to advise him of this but no further referrals to a gynae were made. In Feb I ended up in hospital with the pain and ended up asking for it privately through insurance, I was only covered for surgery and one consultation after.
Because I'm still in so much pain I went back to my GP yesterday and asked for a referral to a gynaecologist my doctor asked me why and I said I was still in pain and that I wanted an eye kept on it incase it would come back. He told me the waiting list was too long and that there was nothing they could do as I've already had the surgery so there was no point! I've done nothing but cry since as I'm so frustrated and annoyed and can't afford to go privately to gynaecologist again, what more can I do if my GP won't do the referral? And it's not that easy for me to change GP over!
Sorry for the long post!
