I had my "follow up" appointment yesterday. What a WASTE of time! I didn't even see my gyne I saw one of the registrars. He had my surgical notes out and got me to sit there reading them, not fully understanding what's what. Obviously said that I had endometriosis but also they found slight fibroids.
He then went on to say "what treatment do you want"... Ummm isn't that your job to tell me? He then says you can have the coil, combined pill or zoladex injection. I have noooo idea what each one does or what each one will do to help me! I go onto mentioning that since surgery I still don't feel right, I keep bloating, I'm still in pain and heavy bleeding. He tells me there's something wrong with my bowel and then stops and goes onto Google to search endometriosis. Tells me I need to go onto Internet at home and research.
After me saying I'm here for you to help me, I don't know what medication would help! I'm not the doctor. He gets out a book and goes to the index, searched endo, goes to the page, gets me to read it out?! He then gets another book with a list of the combined pills and asks me to choose one! Un bloody believable. I got my bag and said I've had enough and walked out.
You literally could not script the whole thing! Will be ringing my gyne secretary this morning to complain and demand another appointment with somebody who actually knows what they are doing!
I am still non the wiser than before the appointment. I am so fed up and down I can't explain. Sorry for the rant 😔
