Hi I wondered if anyone could help with advice for me please? Quick history of the last two and a half years for me - gave up my job due to constant pain in my left hip/ lower back couldn't take time off sick due to what was going on at workplace but went to gp and was referred for physiotherapy whilst doing physiotherapy pain/discomfort much worse then got a lump went to gp suspected inguinal hernia, at the same time periods stopped and much more pain and discomfort underneath also, saw hernia specialist who said periods stopping was no link with hernia. External and internal ultrasounds confirming hernia but cysts on both ovaries and not emptying bladder fully which I believed I had??? Back to gp and referred to gynaecologist. Scans with gynaecologist months later still not emptying bladder fully and cysts gone. Gynaecologist said lap and hysteroscopy to be done, which was a few months later - six weeks check up Yes I removed endo from pelvic cavity and discharged. Was still in the same amount of pain as before but was told go back to gp as it wasn't a gynaecology problem! Gp asked for lumbar mri, months later mri diagnosed degnerative disc disease and spondylolethesis and I was referred to physiotherapist! She saw me and was not happy with how I had been treated, saw her for about six weeks, she didn't examine me but she believed I had a pelvic organ prolapse which I had the pain from the same time as when I got the hernia! She said go back to gp and request an abdominal ct scan just to rule out nothing else is going on. Gp wouldn't do it but referred for another ultrasound. Cyst on an ovary and bladder retaining urine this is 18 months after first scan showing this, asked was this a problem person scanning said could be! Went back to gp and he said make an appointment with female gp for examination, she said I have at least a prolapsed bladder and referred me for pelvic floor physiotherapy. A few months down the line pain is continually getting worse, it's now been two and half years, now waiting to see urogynaecologist. Sorry for the long story but has anyone else had any similar symptoms/stories, are there any links with the things I have been diagnosed with? I have very bad pain/discomfort on left hand side hip and groin and down left leg. I started working part time two months after giving up the full time job, I haven't taken one day off sick in all this time but is becoming so difficult and usually I just come home from work after four hours and collapse - I am 43 but feel probably twenty years older - sorry for such a long story!!!
