Hi. First time posting here. I am on waiting list for a lap. The gynacologist thinks i have endo and am taking the pilll back to back for every 3 months so I only have 4 periods a year. The Gyna I saw recently didnt want me to have a lap done and wanted me to have physio for my back pain. Depsite the fact I've already seen a physio who advised that I didn't need physio. Anyway since last june ive had back pain, excruciating period pain, fatigue, pelvic pain and need to go the loo a lot more. I'm 33. When I was 14-16 my mum used to pick me up from school every other month as my period pain was so bad, so thats why i went on the pill when i was 16. The attitude from my gynacologist really shocked me, she was adamant I didn't need a lap. I ended up bawling my eyes and getting angry until she changed her mind. I also have had IBS for last few years that hasnt repsonded to any treatment whatsoever. I asked if that could be related and she said that i'd only have IBS symptoms when I'm on my period and not constantly. I asked about the bladder issues and she said the cystoscopy would show up endo on the bladder ( i dont think it would). And she said what do you want to happen if they find endo anyway. So i said they can remove it. And she said there's no point as it always comes back anyway. I am so shocked at her attitude. My health has been awful for the last few years and I just want answers. Why is it so hard? Ive had to drop down to part-time uni course as I've been so ill. I'm in pain, and constantly tired. So why not just do a laparoscopy to find out. Does anyone else feel like they're making you out to be a hypochondriac?
