So today was my first visit to the BSGE centre after being treated privately by General gynae's. I felt really nervous and worried that they wouldn't take me seriously as the other gynaes did.
Anyhow, I didn't see the head honcho, but I did see another consultant who was really nice. He asked me lots of questions. When I spoke about bowel issues, he mentioned IBS. I put him straight and told him I had a colonoscopy in March and I had been misdiagnosed worh IBS and that has been ruled out.
He tried to give me an internal but it was miles too painful and I ended up having to stop him. I couldn't stop crying. The consultant was really kind as was the nurse. They stopped and made sure I was ok before sitting me down again.
He then told me, I need an MRI. He explained he wanted to see if it's DIE. I asked if this would show up on the MRI, as my previous experience I was told it would not show up. He said it would be done properly by a someone who understands endo.
So he wants this done by September, then the endo team will meet and discuss this. Then it's surgery time! I also asked about excision, the consultant told me they do that at the hospital as this is the gold standard for treating it!
A bit nervous about the MRI, mainly because what if they don't see anything and then leave me in all this pain!
