My question is: is it normal to be told I probably have endometriosis and just being put on the pill without even being referred for a laproscopy
I don't really know where to start I currently feeling like jumping on a plane and hiding forever I am terrified and the gynae I saw today was no help at all. Basically, my story is that I have always had horrendous periods and in the past 2 month I have had the most awful uncontrollable pain, I am up most nights unable to sleep, I can't wear tight clothes, I can't bend over, I can't work, I just feel like I can't physically do anything. The doctors went down the gastro route first of all but didn't find anything and so I saw the gynae today. It was a surreal experience I was sure I had endometriosis for a while so that wasn't a shock but I thought I was going to be referred for a laproscopy and book it in and it would be a more positive step forward. I have just been put on the pill and am having a follow in 3 months to then be referred to the endometriosis unit- whether I am in pain still or if the pill stops the pain. I have to wait a few weeks before I can start the pill tho.
