I have just been diagnosed with Rv endo and chocolate cysts after over 20yrs of fighting nhs.
I felt the only way i was going to get anywhere was if i went to a private consultant.
Who does a referal to a pain clinic have to come from?
All i have been recomended for pain relief, is in supository form. My consultant firstly reccomended paracetomol and ibroprofen (to my astonishment) when i had a telephone consultation with her. For anyone who is in full swing pain of endo knows, there isn't any way in the world a few paracetomol is going to make any difference!
Prehaps as i have surgery on 28th aug she didn't feel it necessary?
Should i visit my GP and ask for a referral? Are pain clinics also at bsge centres? Am i to assume i am going to be cured after my op?!
