I have an appointment with the gynaecologist tonight. Now I last saw him on the 21st December (so 6 months ago) and I had a laparoscopy last June (a year ago). I went in December with symptoms of my stomach swelling randomly and being painful - mainly after exercise and sometimes after eating, pain during and really bad pain after sex and again MORE swelling of my stomach, feeling tired and just generally fed up. My periods are still painful so he put me on the pill to try and help. Now whilst it has regulated my period/gives me a chance to mentally prepare for when I am going to come on, it has not helped any other symptoms! In fact, they have got worse. Twice in the past week or so I have had HORRIBLE pains which I can only describe as making me feel sick, breathless and I literally could not move for an hour until my pain killers kicked in. It is now affecting me having time off work and I have had to stop going to my dance class and i am missing a show we are doing because I can't commit to going because I do not know when my tummy is going to flare up. I need advice on how to approach my Gyneacologist on getting a good outcome on this! He has suggested injections which come with side effects which I am not comfortable with and I cannot see how this will help with the pain I get (mainly on my cervix). I am also having an internal ultra sound scan - which I had last time and it was painful when looking at my cervix but nothing showed up on it (and nothing ever has) so he didnt really take me seriously! Any tips/advice would be much appreciated!
