Hi guys, I wrote a few weeks back about surgery I am waiting on for stage 4 endo. It involves a tubo ovarian abscess, removal of a blocked tube and an ovary and very likely opening up my bowel removing endo / part of the abscess and doing a resection. So I've been waiting for a surgery date through the NHS, but someone mentioned on here about getting an operation like this done under the BSGE (a specialist endo centre) and having endo specialist surgeons perform the operation rather than just a general gynae / colorectal surgeon at my local hospital.
I've rang my local bsge centre in Birmingham today and they have booked me in for a consultation tomorrow morning and have said that if I were to pay private the op could be done in the next couple of weeks. (I am very fortunate to have such generous in laws who have already said they would pay for any private treatment just to try and get me better now) so my question is - what would your advice be on getting a big operation like this done, is it worth paying the money to get it done by an endo specialist including a colorectal endo surgeon as well rather than just the general one at my hospital?? Help, so confused! Xxx
