I first began noticing worsened pain and other symptoms at the start of 2015 and began seeing my GP in May after monitoring symptoms. He suggested I continue managing as I was and sent me for bloods (helpful...). I went again in August as I was convinced something was so wrong, although I had began to doubt myself as others thought it was me being dramatic. Immediately my GP thought it was either ovarian cancer (scary) or endometriosis and so due to my family history of breast and ovarian i was swiftly sent for tests.
Fortunately, (i was elated obv) cancer was discounted and I was then referred to a gyni (Aug). Saw gyni in October only bwcause when my pwrios cane that month I was at the gps everyday crying in agony and went back mid cycle. Got a gyni appt a week later, was gutted to walk out of that appt having been told '90% chance you have it, lots of women do, youre only 25, im not willing to do a lap, deal with it, come back when youve ttc and failed'.
I went straight back to my gp the very next morning and was referred to an endo specialist at my local hospital to a fantastic consultant but it is now march and I saw him at the start of december. He was more than happy for me to have a lap and couldnt understand the previous gyni.
Anyway we do have to fight for our health and for a lap. Personally, i wasnt willing to not no. My husband and I wish to know the true cause of my pain and symptoms and then make informed decisions about ttc.
My wait is around another 7 weeks and it cant come soon enough, each month I worsen in some way, of late I have struggled to stand up straight or walk without having to lean on furniture to get me from a to b.
