I recently had my first gnae appointment and left feeling deflated.
Since last year I have been told many suspected reasons for my gnae pain. The latest was adenomyosis and endometriosis from ultra sound results.
I was told my referral to gnae was to start the process of a lap to rid me of the adenomyosis and endometriosis.
My gnaecologist told me she looked at my scans and they seem relatively normal and she wishes "they didn't write that on the scan results " - referring to my adenomyosis and endometriosis. The only reason she gave me for not having adenomyosis was my age. The fact I am only 26years old and have no children. I have done plenty of research and as I know many women diagnosed lie in that bracket I also know many women who don't have been diagnosed and treated for adenomyosis.
She suspects endometriosis but also has high suspicions of IBS. Which in my opinion is bs! I've suffered from severe periods since I was 13years old which have multiplied in pain heaviness and clotting in the last year. Taking massive amounts of time off work. (Now in the process of reducing hours). Losing days due to sleep and exhaustion. Severe pain when not on period taking my breath away, throwing up etc.
Told me she wouldn't be going down the route of a lap yet and subscribed me the pill.
I am feeling so angry and disappointed. After waiting so long for an appointment to be told basically my scan was normal and my internal was normal. Being told do many different things is so frustrating.
I stood outside the hospital and broke down.
Can I ask my gp for a second opinion? I really didn't feel she was too interested in treating me for the endo and spent too much time focusing on none existing IBS.
Sorry for the long post.
Thanks for any advice.
