So the good news is I've been referred by my GP to a gynae who specialises in endo at the QEUH.
Today I was crippled in pain, I was on the floor crying, unable to move, all before work. And then 20 minutes later, I look normal again.... That's the worst part. People thinking you're fine because you don't look ill!!
So I went back to my GP after work to see what else can be done pain relief wise and he added an extra 10mg on o my morning dose of slow release morphine but apparently there's nothing more instant relief than fast relief tablets? I would have thought oramorph would be instant?
My GP has been good but now I'm feeling even him is doubting me.
So back to the referral, I called the hospital to see if they had any idea how long I'll be waiting, mainly just so I can roughly plan time off work.
That's 3 bloody months!!
I broke down crying in a heap on the floor.
I am SICK of waiting and being told to wait and suffer.
I am honestly horrified at how I've been treated on the NHS these last 7 years.
I've just called the private hospital where the consultant works (as well as the NHS) and I could see him next Monday if I went privately through BMI Healthcare.
I'm feeling forced into going private, although technically I can't really afford it I feel like I have no other option.
I feel so let down and so unimportant.
3 months is not okay to see a doctor!! And god knows how long after that before my next laparoscopy!!
What else can I do? I feel so lost and I'm just about giving up now.
