Can the NHS refer you to a endometriosis specialist for excision surgery?
The NHS have miss diagnosed me for 5 years, palming me off and saying the pain is in my head. I payed private to have a diagnostic laparoscopy to find out the endometriosis is mainly the lower left of my abdomen and on my bladder and ligaments. I am only 19 but these last 8 months I have been bed bound, unable to straighten my left leg and lost my job.
Unfortunately I can’t afford to pay private for excision surgery but I have lost all faith in the NHS since they preformed my first laparoscopy incorrectly.
So do any of you ladies know if I can be referred for the surgery or is my only option to have it done by a gynaecologist on the NHS? X
