Since my Laparoscopy in October I've had many encounters with GP's and consultants but none have been very helpful at all!
i havent actually seen my consultant since my laparoscopy its always just been a "member of her team" well youd think a member of her team would also know about endo right?... WRONG!!!
she was completely clueless! told me i COULDNT be in pain anymore as the endo had been removed. I'm pretty sure I know what is happening with my own body thank you.... and it feels like there is still endo in there. instead of just putting me on pills that will turn me into a zombie. HELP ME, ACTUALLY LISTEN TO ME!!!!!
no matter how many times i ask for a different doctor or a second opinion they just wave me off and try to appease me with shitty comments like "theres not a lot of research on this topic so theres not a lot i can really do"
even getting an appointment at my GP is ridiculous! dealing with bitchy receptionists who dont understand that there is no point in me booking an appointment if the GP im seeing has no clue what Endometriosis is. so then trying to make me wait weeks and weeks for an appointment. im in pain now! i need help now! not 3 fucking weeks away! what good is that to stop the rapid blood flow, back pain, leg pain, dizzyness, pain when going to the toilet, pain with sex and most important of all i need help with my mental health because my depression and anxiety have been at an alltime high and i cant deal with it by myself, i need help :(.
I am 21 next week, and to no avail i have been fighting the NHS by myself since i was 15 to try and get sorted. but by myself, because ive had no support whatsoever from my parents/family/friends.
what i would like to know is, is there someone i can get to help me fight my corner, because a 21 year old woman alone obviously holds no weight whatesoever with these people and i really really need help!
whether its to come to appointments with me and call the doctors out on their bullshit, to make sure im not being messed around. or to just help me get doctors and consultants who are actually going to help me. i really am at my wits end with this awful treatment ive received!
