Laproscopy findings and new referral

Hi, I had a Laproscopy Friday nothing was found, which I am a bit disappointed about, not that I want to have endometriosis I was just hoping that I would finally have a reason for being in so much pain. Do you know if you get a letter from the gynaecologist explaining what they did and saw during the Laproscopy?

I'm thinking of asking to be referred to a different gynaecologist. From the outset she wanted to give me zoladex injections to stop ovulation, rather then investigate why I get so much pain during ovulation and seemed to ignore all the symptoms I told her I had. I'm really hormone sensitive and can't take any form of contraception so don't like the idea of these injections.

Thanks Lou.x

I believe you can ask for a copy of the letter. They send one to your GP, so you could also ask your GP for a copy.

I guess you have been seen by a general gynaecologist? It might be worth to get a referral to a BSGE, general gynaecologists often miss endometriosis if it is in hard to reach places, like the Pouch of Douglas.

Yes just a general gynaecologist, I'll wait and see if I get a letter. Does endometriosis in the pouch of Douglas cause any specific symptoms?

Yes, back pain radiating down the leg, stabbing pain deep in the pelvis and sciatica pain. Might not be true for everyone but that is what I heard and those symptoms describe my pain exactly (although I do have different pain too on top of that).

Thank you, Sounds very similar to some of the pains I suffer with, I get awful ovulation pain as well, it makes me feel sick it's so painful. Hopefully it will say in the letter what areas they examined.

My consultant sent me a copy of the letter that they sent to my GP with the results from the lap. If you don't get a copy sent to you, like KSvedenmacher said you could always ask your GP for a copy xx
