So today I had an appointment with a consultant gynaecologist after 3 years of begging my GP to do something about the pain I've been having. I must say she was absolutely lovely and made me feel so at ease. She did an internal examination and told me she could feel what she believes is endometriosis. She had referred me to an endometriosis specialist to discuss my options and to have a laparoscopy done by her rather than this consultant performing it. So I'm now a bit worried, firstly because I didn't know you could 'feel' Endo - does this mean I have a lot of it and secondly the reason behind why I'm being referred to a specialist because she feels it more appropriate for her to do it rather than them doing it. Has anyone had this before? My head is a whirlwind of worry
