Hi everyone, hope your all having a positive day so far
I am waiting for my first laparoscopy (finally) but was unsure how long people have generally waited for a first laparoscopy on the NHS? Any ideas please?
Unfortunately the pain in my pelvis is chronic now and I am unable to do most things - including work, although I am trying to seek out an opportunity asap, I know it will be very difficult (maybe even impossible) to work in this condition...
I am 42 and have suffered with severe and chronic hip/pelvic pain since 2012 - and today I am jobless and feel absolutely useless - which is not like me at all because I am normally a very positive and upbeat kind of person.
It's not helping that the NHS have still not diagnosed me, but I just 100% know I have Endometriosis - my symptoms are just too obvious - especially now that it has really established itself inside me.
Anyone else out there feeling a bit down with all the chronic pain? I am on Amitriptyline and Tramadol but it does not take away the gnawing pain in my pelvis and legs - also, I have not bled for 3 months this time around - that's just not normal.
Sorry for being a bit blue today - will do my best to keep my chin up!
Have a lovely day all
