Ok so I had my GP appointment today to ask about being referred to a BSGE centre and the GP said something that really grated on me. She said "I would just refer you back to the gynaecologist because she is the expert, you know, being a gynaeocologist" and this really got to me because like, she had no clue?? I've been with this gynaeo for 2 years already and all she wanted to do was refer me back to her because she believed no one else could have better advice. She asked me who I wanted to be reffered to and said if I could name a place she'd refer me, implying if I couldn't name any, I would be back at square 1.
I'm glad I got the outcome I did but I mean this treatment is pretty shocking right? The fact they thought the general gynaeo was as good as it got and almost accused me of wanting to go against her word. I was told that the specialist will probably told me the same thing as the gynaeo and, if that was the case, not to come back and ask to see anyone else.
I feel awful for anyone else going through this, but keep standing your ground and pushing because it doesn't look like the GP's know as much as they like to think!
