Ladies just a post to let you all know that there is hope for us out there.
I went to see my gp this afternoon as I already had booked an appointment and then I started to feel really Ill over the weekend. Woke up feeling extremley unwell this morning did a urine test and showing signs of infection. Went to docs discussed my ill feeling and he looked at my wound he prescribed some antibiotics and took a urine sample. He wanted to start treatment before results.
Then we spoke about laparoscopy findings he said what ever you want to do is fine he said I'll let you guide me. He explained what we all know about the surgery and more adhesions and explained about if I want to go down fertility route he would be happy to refer me. He believes the bleeding from my bottom is due to endo and suggests that I get better from this infection see how I go if I'm still not coping well. Then I tell him what I want him to do referral etc. I came away from my doctor today feeling very much greatful as I felt after being in hospital that I would be banging my head against a wall with my gp. But I feel like he genuinely cares and gets it. And wants me to make correct informed desicions for my own health which he will support me in.
Just wanted to post this as to let you all know to keep fighting until you get that gp that gets it and that will support you all the way. Not all gps are difficult and dismissive and surely us working with them and tackling the government we'll get the recognition this disease needs and we won't feel like we're fighting a loosing battle.
Hope your all well as can be.
Take care x
