feeling lost and forgotten

Hi all, I'll try to keep it short. I had an emergency c section 4 years ago and since then been in pain and discomfort in my opinion I've been fobbed off and had to fight for too long.

A few weeks ago went to see my G.P AGAIN who has now referred me for an ultra sound scan as he now suspects endo.( Reading post on here tho scans don't/can't always pick this up)

I've not heard anything from the hospital regarding the scan, just feels like, hey ho sorry your in pain and this is affecting your daily life, your social and emotional wellbeing but we'll get to you when and if we remember about you.

I've tried contacting the relevant people but to no avail.

Thanks for listening (reading) just feel lost.

Quite often if a scan shows nothing then it is endo causing the problems. It was in my case. I am getting my official diagnosis via a laparoscopy on friday.

If your scan is clear then your doctor might not even call you back for an appointment so you need to be in the driving seat and push for further action.

Good luck x
