I would like your opinion on the following.
I'm 36 y.o.
So, 15 months ago I had bleeding between periods first and only time ever, periods very regular but heavyish, bareble pain, nothing to complain about. Obviously went to the gp because of this bleeding, was sent for a scan, last december ultrasound showed simple cyst 5cm, then the next scan in march revealed it was still there, sonographer said she will sent a letter to my gp to get a gynecologist appointment, however mistake was made and I was sent for another scan, which I did in may...the same answer..simple cyst 5cm, nothing to worry (all done by 3 different people), again told to expect a letter to get gynecologist app. However, I moved house and this letter got lost etc...so I went to my new gp practise in november last year (a year after original bleeding "event") and was told I can't get to the gynecologist, will have to do scan first to see if the cyst is still there. Ok that was done in mid december, different hospital, now..4th different person scanning...answer the same ...5cm simple syst, referral to gynecologist.
Then In January I went on holiday to my home country, and since it is super easy to get a gynecologist appointment in couple of days in advance, I thought lets see what they will say. In my home country it is actually a gynecologist who performs the scan, so she looked and she said are you joking??!! 4 different people have said its a simple cyst? It is a textbook endometrioma and need removal asap! They also give the scan pictures to the patient, so I got to keep them.
By then my gynecologist appointment day finally was scheduled and I went in the end of January to see a consultant. I told her all this straight away and she looked at the scan for 5seconds and said yes it is endometrioma. So she booked me straight away for laparoscopy to remove the cyst and treat endometriosis (plus hysteroscopy to remove a polyp which also showed on this last scan)
Now..... has anyone had this that sonographers cant /aren't able or qualified enough (all 4of them) to tell the difference between simple and endometrioma?
And! Should a consultant book someone for this procedure only by looking at some scan that I provided myself? When I said do you want to have a look? She said Oh I have seen it (meaning the previos scan) but I pulled mine out of the pocket anyway and then her face changed! Could it have been a simple turned endometriosis within 3weeks? Her writing on the op agreement to treat endometriosis means she thinks there is definately endometriosis because there is a cyst?
Very confused and sorry for the long post but you know, ladies, everyone has a different story and we just want to know the answers.
