so I finally got a referral to a gynecologist (after years of ridiculous diagnoses ranging from constipation to a parasitical disease) they are now sending me for a laparoscopy after having a trans vaginal ultrasound which made me cry cause it was so painful. the hospital they have referred me to though is sending me to a day surgery ward which im not allowed anyone to accompany me to, they have said no one is allowed in the waiting room with me which i could be in for several hours before being anesthetized, is this normal? im only 21 and this i dont want to be put to sleep on my own.
ive been looking at loads of posts on here today and read about the BGSE centers, ive looked this up and the hospital im being sent to is in a trust with another hospital that has one of the endometriosis centres in it, am i able to request to go there or are they likely to say no because its my 1st lap and it might not be severe or should this not matter?7
another thing i had a umbilical hernia removed when i was younger and have read that the scar from this which is just under my belly button could affect me having a lap, is this true?
