I have decided due to the NHS waiting times that I am going to get my Lap done privately. This is all completely new to me and i have so many questions for anyone that has been through a similar experience.
I was referred by my GP to a gynecologist last year who then sent me for scans, tests swabs etc. She then decided to refer me for a lap to diagnose endo. Im currently on the NHS waiting list but have been told i will be looking a June time for the Lap which i just dont feel i can wait for due to the pain im in.
Awaiting a consultation date from my private consultant. Does anybody know if they will just use my notes, scan results and test results from the NHS rather than me having to do all of that again? Will he just do a normal consultation and then give me a Lap date straight after? Will i need to have another pre-op assessment privately even though ive had one on the NHS? How long will i be looking at waiting with private care?
If anyone has any experiences of this please share- im so nervous!!
Thank you :)xx
