Hi, this is the first time I've ever posted in something like this so apologies for waffling.
A tiny bit of back story, a few years ago I was taken into hospital with what they thought at the time was kidney stones. It turned out to be a 15cm cyst on my left ovary and ovarian torsion. Within a day I had it removed as well as the ovary and tubes.
A year later I got increasing pain again. I'd always had intensely painful periods so I thought that was normal but this was a bit different. After a laparoscopy it turns out my bowel and bladder are attached from old scar tissue from the previous operation and I had endometriosis. My gynae was amazing and since then I have used the pill and diet to control the pain.
For the the past year, it's been much better, the old shoot of pain and a dull ache here and there but nothing to set alarm bells ringing. However in the past month the pain has been returning with increasing intensity. I saw my doctor a few weeks ago and explained my concerns (I have the same lower back pain as I did when I had the cyst) anyway I didn't feel like she wasnt particularly helpful but has put me on waiting list for a scan.
The pain is now getting worst I'd say 6/7 out of 10 but I've experienced 10/10 and I never want to get there again.
I guess I'm wondering people's opinions on if I should wait for the scan or just drop in to a&e (I feel like a fraud because I've been in worse pain than this many times before) but the stress of not knowing and being in pain lol day every day is getting a bit much
I'm reaching a point where I want children and don't want to lose that opportunity. But I'm worried that this is making me a bit irrational.
All suggestions welcome
