Hi I am currently waiting for a diagnosis as last month I had 3 nights in hospital with what they think was an infected endometrioma. It is 5cm on my left ovary. I had an intense episode of pain which resulted in an ambulance to A&E, who after taking blood tests said I had signs of inflammation and infection but he didn't know where from. He said I needed to go to the sexual health clinic as he thought it was an std, pelvic infection😯
I went to the clinic and they said straight away I didn't need to be there, did all the tests anyway which were negative and sent me home saying I should go to my GP and ask to have my ultrasound scan brought forward. (My GP had referred me as I'd been having intense pain for a few months, nothing like this though) I had a sleepless night with pain extending up my abdomen and managed to get in the gp in the morning. I explained everything and he said there was no way to bring the scan forward then he took my temp which was high and felt my tummy, I burst into tears😭 he asked me to wait in the waiting room and made a phone call. I was given an emergency referral to gynocology where I had an ultrasound and 48 hours of IV antibiotics.
I have now had a second scan and have a follow up appointment to, I presume decide on treatment next week.
I am in pain often but I would say I'm finding fatigue the hardest thing at the moment. It has been wonderful to read so many posts on here of symptoms I can relate to.
I think women are amazing to deal with this!
Sorry this is so long!
Anyone's personal experiences of similar would be much appreciated😊
