Hi everyone, I hope you have all had a happy, healthy start to the new year.
I was just hoping for some advice. I have finally got my GP to refer me to a gynaecologist and, after them cancelling my initial appointment because they "thought it was more appropriate for a different consultant" to see me? I have got my appointment this coming Wednesday.
Honestly it's really sad that I'm genuinely excited about the appointment! Maybe that's because I'm currently on day 14 of cramps and day 11 of heavy bleeding that I'm just praying they have an answer for me!
I'm trying not to get my hopes up but I'm really hoping that they refer me for a lap. Does anyone have any advice how to make sure this happens/what sort of things I should emphasise while I'm there? I don't want to mess up what seems like a once in a lifetime appointment! Any advice is so appreciated!
P.S. My symptoms for anyone that wants to know;
Pain before, during and after period
Deep internal pain during sex and soreness after.
IBS symptoms during period
And for a couple of years now I have had hip pain on the right side, to the point that I'm limping when walking and it feels so stiff I can hardly move it. I have only just noticed in the last few months that this is a cyclic thing and only ever occurs during my period (as if I'm not in enough pain).
Last doctor told me my symptoms were all caused by the multiple cysts I had on my ovaries (seen on internal ultrasound), however she couldn't see a reason for my pain - hence taking it further.
