Had an excellent appointment with a really good endo specialist.
After a false start with seeing a gyno, where there was misunderstanding about her not receiving the information, I went back the next week and saw an amazing general gynaecologist who was so lovely and understanding, but wanted my case to be taken over by their endometriosis specialist.
A week later I saw him, he was equally as lovely as the previous doctor, so understanding, understood about possible complications with my other medical issues.
Talked me through the possible options, the fact I could have surgery, or not, he knew that the hormones may not be to my advantage because of what I have, and also surgery could have more problems for me, and also not alleviate my pain.
Good news is too, he's the head doctor of the BSGE and he'll be the one to treat and if needed operate on me under the BSGE. I didn't even ask to get referred to them, the gyno just said he thought he would be the best fit for me and I'm to come back and I'm only to see him from now on.
For now surgery has been left to the side with a pin in it, he wants me to have further tests for other health issues and we'll discuss it in six months if we both think surgery will be the best option.
I'm really thankful to have such a good doctor who I feel I can trust and who understands my situation and also is so good in his field. I didn't think I would find this on the NHS, especially so quickly. So I'm thankful!
