My dh and I have been trying to conceive for 2 & 1/2 yrs, I am nearly 32, he is 32. No problems with him, his guys are very healthy.
I had a HyCoSy and ultrasound on 9th September and was shown that I have three sizeable cysts and a polyp. Gynae thinks I have endo (after initially brushing me off when I said I think I have endo - runs in the family and many symptoms fit - and telling me I have pcos which doesn't fit my symptoms) as cysts look to be chocolate. Anyway, I was immediately referred for a lap to investigate and remove cysts and polyp.
I was told the waiting list was 12 weeks for the procedure, 10 weeks for pre-op. Having heard nothing, and this week it was 10 weeks, I phoned the clinic who, when someone eventually got back to me, gave me a number for the hospital. Spoke to someone yesterday who told me that I should receive a letter in December and that my pre-op will probably take place in January and the lap possibly at the end of January, more likely in February.
I am peeved to say that least considering the clinic told me 12 weeks and it looks like it'll be six months. The cysts were discovered during a scan I had back at the end of April, but because that was through my GP nothing was done about them and endo wasn't flagged. I wasn't told they were likely to be chocolate. A GP (not my usual) told me I would be a good case for ivf, and as there was fluid I'd obviously managed to burst one and left it at that.
My mum wants me to look into the costs and waiting times of going private. The hospital I've been referred to is very good and has an endo centre. But I don't even know who my consultant will be under the NHS.
What are your experiences of waiting times?
