I was finally referred to a gynae after years of struggling with my periods. There was no apprehension from the consultant (two opinions) when telling me I should have a diagnostic lap. But I've been through the mill will my symptoms, with one doctor basically telling me it was subjective and it wasn't as bad as I was making out. So now I feel like it's all in my head and they're not going to find anything when I go in for my surgery (It should be in 2-3 months). I am also very nervous about this as I haven't been in hospital ever before.
The gynae also mentioned I had an abrasion of some kind on my cervix (can't quite remember what he said) but I was shocked to find out that the previous had found it, written it in my notes and yet failed to inform me.
Just looking for some support really! Especially given I am only 21 and the surgery will be around my exam time at univeristy.
