So... Things have moved on a little as I got a cancellation appointment 2 weeks ago with the BSGE Specialist. Far less of a bedside manner than the general gynae first consult I had,but efficient and clearly the right person to have on the ice. Yet another internal which was painful. In the space of 2 days I had a write up to my gp and by Friday a call for an MRI scan which I had Wednesday. In contrast first Gynae finally sent a follow up appointment request over a month later and nothing to my GP.
New Specialist Gynae covered same ground, said there was a balance of risk case for operating and though if possible he'd do therapeutic surgery in lap one odds were that it was more significant and a second op may be necessary. Particularly he seemed bothered by "guarding" on the right side of my pelvis during the exam which might indicate higher bowel endo. Though I've no bowel symptoms.
With Dyspareunia so much worse I've given up on the op avoidance strategy and the first op is set for 6 Dec. Great. I am meant to fly for my winter holiday on 1 Jan so worried i will still be in pain as I took weeks to recover after my cervix op way back, hubby in "it will all be fine" mode too. Still finding idea of op utterly horrific for some reason will have to find a way to deal with it somehow.
Specialist said I would only be contacted if the scan showed any complications that required discussion about op, but I missed a call from his secretary on Friday so now feeling a bit worried... hoping just a bill query....
