Hiya everyone, haven't posted on here before but feel like I need some support. I've had endometriosis since I was about 17, had my first laparoscopy in 2013 when I was 20. My symptoms began again about 6-7 months ago & have been referred back to a consultant, had a scan and an endometrioma was found on my right ovary. Tuesday evening ended up in A&E with excruciating pain, they thought maybe ovarian torsion or the endometrioma had ruptured. After another scan they couldn't find anything, endometrioma was still intact so have just kept me in for pain management. Due to go home today even though my pain is still not under control, they won't do a laparoscopy because they say it's not emergency surgery, say I have to go home and wait for a date for elective surgery, I haven't even seen or spoken to a consultant since I've been in. I am about to qualify as a nurse, supposed to be starting a new job soon and this is going to delay it all so much, no one seems to be taking me seriously and it feels like I have to fight to get anything done, it's so frustrating when I know a lap will sort the problem out.
